Three things you love about Santa Fe...

Three things you could do without in Santa Fe...


Appreciate any insight. Visited once, coming back in November. SF on possible relocation list.

I like
- being able to drive ten minutes and find myself up at 9,000 feet on a hiking trail in old growth pine forests
- the art

- the smell of pinion firewood in winter evenings


I could do without
- the tourism
- the small town lack of entertainment venues
- the high prices


I lived there for a couple years when I worked in state government. Definitely enjoyed it. Lot of outdoor activities. Good people. World class art. Cool vibe.

Game Of Six and Four:

The Good:

1. The arts in general
2. Native culture and overall diversity
3. The architecture
4. Small size/absence of urban sprawl & traffic, comparatively
5. For a small town, has a lot of high-quality lecture venues, due to presence of research institutes, national science lab nearby, and higher ed institutions
6. Decent, cheap transit system


The Not-So-Good:

1. Summer heat
2. Lack of walkability in most neighborhoods
3. Not enough food/restaurant diversity; nearly everything is SW, or Southwest-ified (enough with the peppers, already!)
4. Summer heat

Great list Ruth!
Amazing how things are relative. I visited July 5th two years back and expected to melt to the sidewalk. I was amazed how mild the weather was - especially when comparing to the heat and humidity of my Deep South.
Would you know if Taos is considerably cooler in the summer or about the same as SF?

Will be visiting both over the thanksgiving week.

Thanks again!

In the summer not considerably cooler. About the same.
But in the winter Taos tends to be colder and snowier than SF.
