Santa Fe is considered friendly to members of the LGBTQ+ community, with its longstanding spirit of inclusion, openness, and acceptance of varying ideas and cultures. Based on the 2010 census, the city has the fifth-highest proportion of same-sex couples in the United States. Javier Gonzales, who served as Santa Fe’s mayor from 2014-2018, was the city’s first openly gay mayor.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

People travel from all over the world to experience Santa Fe’s mesmerizing blend of Spanish and Native American architecture set against the rugged backdrop of the American Southwest. But the city’s allure goes deeper: The nickname “The City Different” extends beyond Santa Fe’s diverse cultural history and into an ongoing embrace of new people, progressive ideas, and various artistic styles.

Creativity is abundant in Santa Fe — and is found in many forms. The Santa Fe Opera’s large, open-air theater just north of the city dazzles audience members with a glimpse of the surrounding wilderness. The New Mexico Museum of Art — with its Pueblo Revival exterior and extensive collection of American and European paintings, prints, drawings, and more — defines the Southwestern aesthetic. For fans of modern and contemporary art, there’s the popular Georgia O’Keeffe Museum and the newer, immersive surreal Meow Wolf, an interweaving array of hands-on exhibits featuring elements of sculpture, music, and video. Other must-see museums in Santa Fe include the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture and the Museum of International Folk Art.

Santa Fe is also a place to discover the outdoors, whether you stroll the city streets or venture into the surrounding landscape. Visitors exploring the Plaza will find a unique, timeless city square of earth-tone adobe structures housing restaurants and shops, with Saint Francis Cathedral just around the corner. From there, you can walk down Canyon Road to the many jewelry stores and galleries showcasing all sorts of Native American, Latino, and folk art. Outside of the city, you can escape to the wineries, golf courses, and bike trails in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

Transportation

Many of Santa Fe’s most popular areas, like the Plaza and Canyon Road, are compact enough to be easily accessible on foot. The city also has a well-planned system of bike lanes. For public transportation, The Santa Fe Pickup Shuttle is a free public service with several stops in the downtown area, and the Santa Fe Bus Trails Service connects riders to spots around the whole city. Visitors can also rent cars from all the major car rental companies or use ride-sharing services like Lyft and Uber.
