Santa Fe, NM

Santa Fe is nestled in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the foothills of the Rockies. It is immersed in natural beauty, with an average of 300 days of sunshine and blue sky. One of the most unique offerings of Sante Fe is the open-air opera. Take a back-stage tour for only $5, or catch some of the best from the 2009 season, La Traviata and Don Giovanni. Don’t speak Italian? Don’t worry, this opera house has electronic translators on the back of each seat so you can read English while you hear the beautiful music.

Santa Fe is probably the best place in the world to shop for specifically American Indian arts and crafts. Find a great Native American memento from a vendor in front of the Palace of the Governors. For higher-quality Indian art, try vendors clustered around the Plaza.
