Santa Fe natives—not to be mistaken for Santa Fe locals—will tell you that many people start a third life in their beloved hometown. The picturesque, mountainous city, which is sublime during all four seasons, has an unshakable small-town appeal that’s attractive for many who are seeking a permanent or momentary lifestyle change. Beyond the spiritual awakenings—which are sure to happen—Santa Fe boasts an exciting, evolving art scene, world-class hotels, and culinary delights that distinguish the city as one of the best-kept secrets in North America.
[For] a splash of the Southwest, head over to the historic Railyard District for a different kind of retail therapy. Equal parts art gallery, retail space, and workshop, Santa Fe Clay is an 11,600-square-foot warehouse that supports and promotes education and production of the ceramic arts. This unique art centre encourages visitors to shop the collection in the art gallery and invest in a piece of local art.
The authenticity of Santa Fe’s residents and business owners deserves a mention as well. They’re hospitable and quick to give a history lesson—and that never feels exhausting. They want you to be part of the conversation, treating you less like a guest and more like family.
