The City of Santa Fe
Santa Fe, New Mexico, fondly referred to as the "City Different", lies in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains at an altitude of 7,000 feet. America's oldest capital city, Santa Fe is rich in culture and has an extensive heritage. Visitors will immediately feel Santa Fe's timelessness as they behold the preservation of its historic buildings, view the distinct Spanish-Pueblo style of architecture, hear the Spanish language spoken here and witness the Native American influences in the arts. Santa Fe is one of the country's most diverse and fascinating cities. It is a popular vacation destination for tourists drawn to the abundance of cultural attractions including Native Amaerican festivals, museums, art galleries, opera, and over 200 restaurants. Santa Fe is also a favorite getaway choice of outdoor enthusiasts. The Sangre de Christo mountains provide many hiking trails and offer excellent skiing. The Rio Grande hosts white water rafting and fishing. With over 300 days of sunshine, the weather remains clear and primarily VFR for aviators. Santa Fe is a great place for flight training.
