There’s An Art to Living in Santa Fe
Named one of the country's top three tourist destinations by Conde Nast Traveler magazine, Santa Fe is also one of the most cultural and artistic cities in the nation. Its vibrant landscapes have inspired artists for generations, and it's estimated that one in six residents in Santa Fe works in the arts. The city is home to 250 art galleries, 13 museums and a world-acclaimed opera company. You'll also find 225 restaurants that offer a taste of Santa Fe's multicultural flavor.
With its dry summers and mild winters, the climate in Santa Fe is equally inviting. Residents enjoy 300 days of sunshine a year, ideal for hiking, golfing, biking, and skiing amid the area's beautiful natural surroundings.
Stretching across 11,000 rolling acres dotted with pinon and juniper trees, Rancho Viejo is thoughtfully planned to preserve the natural open spaces while providing a sense of community. Its unique village concept incorporates the area’s heritage and emphasis on community. At Rancho Viejo, 50 percent of the community is preserved as natural open space and parks, separating and defining a unique collection of villages.
Paved trails for walking, biking and jogging wind through the rolling grasslands and hillsides of these open spaces, connecting individual villages. In the traditional northern New Mexican style, each village features a central plaza where neighbors can gather.
