Sante Fe, NM

The beautiful city of Santa Fe shows all the best of the New Mexican color and richness in its architecture, the streets lined with touristy stores, art galleries, museums and restaurants. The cathedral basilica of St. Francis of Assisi dominates the downtown core, reminding you of its presence with the bells at each quarter hour.

There are also many other stunning examples of architecture from various eras. One of these is the oldest church in America, built here in 1610 and preserved on a new base. Nearby is the oldest home, built in 1646. The original adobe brick shows the presence of straw and clay, as well as local pebbles.

There are numerous parking areas, and the old town, which is a wonderful tourist draw, is very walkable. You can find and buy fun knickknacks but there are also many treasures that are the work of local artists. These vary from necklaces set with fine stones and silverwork, to paintings in various media, copper statuary and blown glass art.

Inspiration seems to be strong here as the visual richness shows. The New Mexican symbols, the history, the nature of the sky, land and weather, the dominance of the sun, the animals, the traditions, and the raw materials of the countryside all lend their essence to the creation of the art that you see everywhere.

Most of the camping is centered in Santa Fe National Forest which lies east of town, where the sites are primitive and the setting is wonderful. A handful of RV parks are a little closer to the city.
