In The Heart of Northern New Mexico

While we are deep in the mountains (your cell phone won’t work here), the Ranch is a short 30-minute drive to Santa Fe, one of the premier travel destinations in the U.S. Santa Fe calls itself The City Different, and it earns that title by having an amazing variety of things to do. There are historic sites, world-class art galleries, some of the best shopping in the country, and a wide range of mouthwatering cuisine you won’t find anywhere else.

Art Lies at the Heart

The average visitor to Santa Fe sees five art galleries while they are there. There are more than 250 galleries featuring paintings, sculpture, textiles, pottery, photography, and more, all located along the city’s legendary Canyon Road. The city also holds many museums, including the only U.S. museum dedicated to a female artist, Georgia O’Keeffe. The Meow Wolf’s House of Eternal Return is “an interactive art experience driven by non-linear storytelling that unfolds through exploration, discovery, and 21st century interactivity. Visitors choose their own path: walking, climbing, and crawling through a multiverse of more than 70 unique rooms created by a team of more than 500 artists.”
