Explore New Mexico’s enchanted capital

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Many might not think of the city of Santa Fe, New Mexico as being an excellent spot for a romantic getaway, though they might be surprised.  The beauty of both the city and the surrounding countryside make this land feel enchanted.  And with the laws in the city acting to preserve it from modern development, it has an out-of-time atmosphere that will charm you.  Several romantic hotels are located within the city, so there are plenty of options, from affordable to four-star.  You can ski in the winter, visit the opera, explore historic sites and museums, or just stuff your face at one of the city’s many restaurants.  For an urban experience like no other, Santa Fe is an excellent place to visit.  Has anyone been to Santa Fe before?  What would you recommend doing while there?
