When’s the Best Time to Visit Santa Fe?
The short answer: all the time. However, we’ll flesh out the slightly longer answer a bit here so you can decide when the best time for you may be. When most people think of New Mexico, they think of the dry, arid desert. While this can be partly true of certain areas, this is not the case with Santa Fe. Santa Fe sits at the foot of the Rocky Mountains and is at an elevation of about 7,000 feet. You can expect to see trees, mountains, and snow depending on the time of year that you are visiting. Which leads us to our next point. If you are interested in snowboarding in nearby areas and enjoying the fun wintertime activities, then you may enjoy visiting during October through March. If you are more interested in basking in the sunshine while attending outdoor festivals and seeing everything that Santa Fe has to offer on foot, then you’ll love going during our peak season from July through September. It’s worth noting, that this is the most popular time to go.
