Welcome to the new year and all that Santa Fe has to offer—world-class cuisine, extraordinary visual and performing arts, access to the great outdoors, a 412-year-old history, and a nexus of Native American, Hispanic, and Anglo cultures, all three influences mixing, and shaping one another as they do. Come see how we do different in The City Different.

Hop aboard Sky Railway, Santa Fe's new adventure entertainment trains. Two former Santa Fe Southern Railway engines have been reimagined with a team led by Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin. Rolling merrily along the 18-mile stretch of track between The City Different and Lamy depots, Sky Railway trains offer themed experiences, like murder mysteries, stargazing, culinary trips, tales of local lore, and more. Be among the first to ride this historic route with a fun, modern twist.

Ski and ride more than 80 trails at Ski Santa Fe, just 16 miles from downtown Santa Fe. A fun feature in January is live music on Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Pause between runs and grab a beer, a couple of tamales, and enjoy some cool vibes and great tunes courtesy of local musicians on the deck of Totemoff’s Bar & Grill.
Though you have until mid-June to view this exhibit at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, we're recommending you get a headstart to weave in a few visits to this groundbreaking show of works in glass by 33 Indigenous artists, plus Dale Chihuly, who introduced glass art to Indian Country. Not only does this exhibit coincide with the United Nations' designated Year of Glass, but this is one of many exhibits you can enjoy during Indigenous Celebration 2022, a coordinated initiative inspired by Santa Fe Indian Market's Centennial and designed to reposition Indigenous art to its rightful place as the original American Art. The year 2022 also happens to be the 60th anniversary of the Institute of American Indian Arts, and the 50th anniversary of its contemporary Native arts museum, MoCNA.
