Santa Fe, NM

At the base of the Rocky Mountains in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains lies Santa Fe, New Mexico. The second oldest city in the United States, Santa Fe was founded between 1607 and 1610, and at over 7,000 feet above sea level , it is the highest city in the nation. Approximately 70,000 people call Santa Fe home, making it the fourth largest city in New Mexico.

NEIGHBORHOODS AND DISTRICTS

In 1912, all of the buildings in Santa Fe were remodeled to mimic the Spanish/Pueblo style in an effort by city officials to draw in tourists. Around 1930, when architect John Gaw Meem entered the scene, he expounded on the original theme, developing a new style dubbed "Territorial," which included larger windows and carved woodwork. Santa Fe has been nicknamed "City Different" because the Spanish/Pueblo Style makes the city look completely different than anywhere else in the country. Today, Santa Fe has changed and evolved, but it still retains its unique architecture.

Visitors can take a walk along Canyon Road, an old Indian trail, and witness homes dating back to the 1700s with many samples of Santa Fe's one-of-a-kind style.
