It is located at the foundation of the Rocky Mountains in north-central New Mexico and this city has 4 seasons. This is the reason why it is the best place for those that find pleasure in outdoor activities. 

While it offers many outdoor experiences, Santa Fe is rich in history, culture, food, and much more. The residents of this city have the opportunity to experience some of the greatest things in the country. In this case, here are the best parts about living in Santa Fe.

Santa Fe Railyard

It has almost been 7 years since Railyard has reopened. A 50-acre area residential, social, and commercial district has become the most popular destination for tourists and residents. This location has many restaurants, antique stores, art galleries, and the yearlong Santa Fe Farmer’s Market that has become the biggest farmer’s market of New Mexico.
