Nestled on a tributary of the Rio Grande is Santa Fe, the capital city of New Mexico. Aptly nicknamed “The City Different,” this interesting city is a melting pot of cultures – ranging from Mexican and Spanish to Native American and Anglo-American influences. The mountain town is one of the most popular destinations in the Southwest, with its fascinating history, art, architecture, and cuisine, to name a few.

Top Things to Do
Being so close to the Mexican border and a former Spanish colony, it only makes sense for Santa Fe to meld various cultures together. As a result, the city has turned into an exciting holiday destination offering a diverse set of activities. Whether you want to try the local cuisine, check out the shopping scene or see impressive architecture, there’s definitely something for you in Santa Fe.
Santa Fe has some of the most impressive museums in the United States. It’s no wonder that renowned artist Georgia O’Keeffe came to town to gain inspiration for her paintings. Check out Bounce’s recommendations for must-visit museums in Santa Fe.
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture: Located in the Historic Eastside neighborhood, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture (MIAC) is a facility that aims to provide a culturally sensitive and accurate presentation of the cultures of southwest Native Americans. At MIAC, you will find exhibitions that feature historical artifacts from the indigenous people along with contemporary pieces. (Bag-check policy: Guests are not allowed to bring large bags or backpacks into the museum’s premises. Luckily, Bounce has partners in the Historic Eastside area where guests can leave their luggage during their visit to the museum.)
Georgia O’Keeffe Museum: Found in downtown Santa Fe, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum is one of the town’s most famous attractions. As its name suggests, this museum was built to honor the artistic life and works of Georgia O’Keeffe. Some of the artist’s works on display include her signature desert landscape paintings along with her lesser-known pieces such as the “White Birds of Paradise.” (Bag-check policy: Only small bags or purses are allowed inside the museum. Complimentary lockers are available, but on a first-come, first-serve basis. An alternative would be to find a Bounce partner in the downtown area and store your bags there.)
New Mexico Museum of Art: Established in 1917, the New Mexico Museum of Art is one of the state’s oldest art museums. A block away from the iconic Santa Fe Plaza, the facility houses over 20,000 works from early Santa Fe and Taos artists. It is also home to pieces by well-known artists such as Ernest L. Blumenschein and Gustave Baumann. (Bag-check policy: There is no dedicated bag-check area in the museum. Visitors with huge bags can go to one of Bounce’s partners in the Plaza area for short-term storage.)
Shopping in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is an experience unlike any other. There is a noticeable absence of big chain stores and retailers. In its place, you’ll find charming boutiques, locally-owned businesses, and a collection of Southwest specialties. Here’s a guide on where to shop in The City Different.
Native American works: When in Santa Fe, it’s hard not to be amazed by the beautiful arts and crafts by the Native Americans, who were one of the first inhabitants of the city. While there are plenty of shops that sell such items, the one that you definitely shouldn’t miss is Shiprock, a well-curated Navajo gallery and shop located in the famous Santa Fe Plaza. Other stores worth checking out are Rainbow Man and Ortega’s.
Specialty food items: Santa Fe has a unique culinary scene that draws a lot of people. If you want to stock up on locally-sourced ingredients, you should visit the Santa Fe School of Cooking. The institution has been around for over 25 years, where you can buy traditional ingredients and unique cookware. They also offer cooking classes focused on New Mexican cuisine.
Art: While in New Mexico, you might want to purchase some incredible works of art. If so, the best place to go is the famous Canyon Road. This entire street is lined with galleries containing some of the best art curated from all over the world.
Staying true to its nickname, “The City Different,” Santa Fe offers a diverse, multi-cultural experience for both locals and visitors. This is evident in their local cuisine – from traditional New Mexican dishes to internationally-influenced fusions. To narrow down your search for the best restaurants in Santa Fe, here is Bounce’s list of essential eats in the city.
Sazón: This restaurant by chef Fernando Olea is originally from Mexico City, but has since made a name for itself in the town of Santa Fe. The menu is a mix of traditional and modern Mexican dishes. However, one dish that is a must-try is the signature Olea’s signature mole.
Geronimo: One of the most beloved restaurants by the locals of Santa Fe, Geronimo has been delivering a wonderful culinary experience for over two decades. The restaurant, which is managed by top chef Eric DiStefano, is located in a massive adobe that dates back to 1756. Some of the must-try items include the peppery elk tenderloin and their signature cocktail Fountain of Youth.
Jambo Café: This award-winning restaurant offers a fusion of African and Caribbean cuisine. Ahmed Obo, chef and owner of Jambo Café, is originally from Kenya, on an island called Lamu. Here, he learned how to cook from his mother and has since elevated the local cuisine. Some of the eclectic dishes at Jambo Café include the Kenyan-styled beef kabobs and island-spiced black rice.
