Today Santa Fe is known all over the world for its contemporary and cosmopolitan ambiance. Old World architecture and values blend with an attitude that embraces diversity and creativity to create a “City Different” where every day is a fresh experience, yet grounded in a sense of historic timelessness.
Santa Fe’s culture, art, and multicultural traditions are a continual draw for visitors and soon-to-be residents. It is home to America’s third largest art market, the internationally acclaimed Santa Fe Opera and many performing arts organizations, the renowned annual Indian Market and Spanish Market, fantastic restaurants with world-class chefs, hundreds of eclectic shops, and easy access to endless outdoor activities from hiking to skiing. Now the word is out to filmmakers, and a number of directors and photographers are finding the Santa Fe area a perfect setting for their productions.
With an average 283 sunny days per year, four distinct seasons and a year-round temperate climate, Santa Fe is a very environmentally enjoyable city.
