With Catholic churches throughout the town, more than 250 galleries and about 100 privately-owned family restaurants, there something for everyone in Santa Fe.
Six hours south from Denver, Colorado, it's a great destination for a long weekend.
Here are three things to do in Santa Fe:
1. For breakfast, eat like a local. Tia Sophia's, serving breakfast and lunch, is frequented by the locals. Tourists might find it by accident walking around downtown Santa Fe.
2. Visit the Miraculous Staircase of Loretto Chapel. This staircase, built with no nails, is owned by a private family. To keep up with the maintenance, visitors will pay $3 as an admission (as of 4/2014). Prices might go up.
3. Need more culture? Follow the signs to the Georgia O'Keefe Museum, a site honoring the renowned female artist of New Mexico landscapes and legendary water color artwork of flowers. The museum shows both changing and traveling exhibits. Currently, O'Keefe's collaboration with famous photographer Ansel Adams are exhibited in the last three galleries of this museum. Because it is a traveling exhibit, photography is not allowed in these areas.
Foodies, faith tourists and culture lovers will enjoy the amazing attractions of Santa Fe. It's a delight for anyone.
