"There is a reason that artists—Georgia O’Keefe for one—have long flocked to Santa Fe. With its organic adobe architecture and laidback, open-minded vibe, this colorful city seduces without ever trying too hard. The cuisine isn’t fussy or fancy, yet hits all the right tastebuds. The shopping is surprisingly diverse and eclectic. And if ever you cease to be sufficiently persuaded, a sunset drive into the hills of Chimayo will secure the enthusiasm of even the toughest converts."
