Santa Fe, located in the Sangre de Cristo foothills is the capital of New Mexico’s capital. But, far from the bustling, disconnected vibes that come with many capitals, the communities of Santa Fe enjoy and relish in their breathtaking surroundings. It has a rootsy, earthy soul and is often referred to as the ‘city different’. Santa Fe is unique. No trip to Santa Fe is complete without visiting one of the many museums, historical sites, and art galleries. One of our favorite places to visit is Meow Wolf, an immersive neon spectacular location that often hosts DJ events and parties. For shopping head to Canyon Road, or clear your head and tackle one of the many nearby nature trails. This is a city where traditional perfectly co-exists with contemporary life and this is reflected in our properties below. Check out the Vrbo vacation rentals in Rancho Santa Fe, for an unforgettable holiday.
