About Santa Fe
Santa Fe, New Mexico, is one of the great destination cities of the world. For visitors, meeting planners and adventurers alike, Santa Fe provides historic surroundings, enduring cultures, timeless beauty, and sophisticated food and hospitality, making it a perfect location for your next meeting, conference or convention.
Santa Fe is nestled in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the southern most sub-range of the Rocky Mountains, at an altitude of just over 7,000 feet. The city occupies over 37 square miles in the upper Rio Grande valley just below mountains that reach above 12,000 feet. Thousands of acres of national forest and wilderness surround the city, and yet it is only an hour's drive to the Albuquerque International Airport.
Founded in 1610 and known as the "City Different," Santa Fe is the oldest state capital in the United States. The City's signature adobe architecture, tree-shaded Plaza, and winding streets make the city feel more like a foreign destination than one of America's most historic places.
Its friendly people, laid back pace, temperate climate, and welcoming hospitality make this distinctive city one of the top destinations in the country.
