Laid out in the protective foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Santa Fes crooked streets follow the contours of the uneven earth, offering a scene in the shades of terracotta, ginger, and coffee. With its idiosyncratic cosmopolitan style, this town boasts an inordinate number of lodging, galleries, gift shops, bookstores, and restaurants. It is also the hub of the scientific luminaries. Take a stroll up the whistling Canyon Road leading to the piñon foothills, an immersion into Santa Fes eclectic art world. Cottonwoods provide shade and a cloying sweet fragrance emanates from purple wisteria blossoms, as the ancient narrow De Vargas Street leads westward to the Santuario de Guadalupe. Visit the amazing cathedrals, take a balloon feast and fly in the mercy of the wind. Heat your feet strong in flamenco dancing, then join the pottery class to calm down your passion. Lift your five senses at the hotel Inn of the Five Graces. Open your chakras with the color therapy, and rejuvenate your body a the spa Ten Thousand Waves. Dine at izanami, where the paella, scallops and shrimp marinated in tequila bring to mind balmy ocean breezes and the stone streets of Puerto Vallarta. Remember: Santa Fe not only attracts artists, writers, natural healers, psychics, and physics. The hustle-bustle of its modern life is tempered, a people linger over cappuccinos or spend a day chopping and hauling piñon wood from the nearby mountains. Blue jeans, cowboy belts and boots are de rigueur. Welcome to the capital of a Land of Enchantment!
