I've never been to your city (plan to visit soon) but I am very intrigued. It seems like a very beautiful place. From what I gather it sounds like the city imposes certain zoning laws and regulations that maintain the old school look of the city.

I have no doubt Santa Fe is loaded with awesome restaurants and boutiques....but what about the typical day to day shopping? Is there anyplace in reasonable driving distance that is equivalent to a modern day Strip Mall? If you need to get to a Wal-Mart or Home Depot do you have to drive to Albequerque or are there commercial districts that have all the modern retailers available nearby?

Thanks!

I think there are two Wal-Marts and a Home Depot in Santa Fe. There are architecture requirements in many areas, and like most larger cities there are zoning laws and regulations. I live in the Albequerque area. We normally only go to Santa Fe when we have visitors, and we do the tourist areas as best we can with the time limitations.

Come on out and enjoy the area...

Almost 7 yrs ago..when we first came out to S-F..we spent an extra week here..we loved it so much. We ended up in Georgia O'Keeffe Country overlooking the Village of Abiquiu (which S-F is not). We're happy! ~dfk

Santa Fe is certainly a beautiful place for tourists to visit, but it's also a lively and active city of 60,000. The commercial area is centered on Cerrillos road, which radiates south west from the center of the city, but there are other shopping plazas scattered throughout. So yes, we have all the chains you'd expect to see - Walmart, Target, Lowes, Home Depot, and even a small mall with Dillards, Sears and JCPenney.

It's possible to live your entire day-to-day life without leaving Santa Fe.

Talking Where to go for...

This is not high on my list... but no TJMaxx or Marshalls? I'm rather chuckling that Santa Fe has TWO Walmarts, and is an expensive place to live.... so thought the clothing selection would be right up there. Must be in the private shops.... down Plaza way??? Then,, too, sounds like there are resale/consignment shops for me to haunt... Thanks for your input... and just had to add to "important" retail chains that I had hoped would be around... but then I'll bet Alburque has TJ's and Marshalls, hey? Soultrysol..

I don't see that Santa Fe has a Costco yet (nor does Las Cruces). And the Dillards, a better quality department store, is one of the smaller stores not like the large Dillards on the east side in Albuquerque. But Santa Fe seems to have come a long way in the last ten years with respect to retail shopping. I remember when buying my brother's Christmas present, I would always buy something from Walmart in case he needed to return it. There was no Target in Santa Fe at that time.
