When Georgia O’Keeffe first set eyes on the New Mexican landscape around Santa Fe, she wrote, “I’d never seen anything like it before, but it fitted to me exactly. It’s something that’s in the air — it’s different. The sky is different, the wind is different. I shouldn’t say too much about it because other people may be interested and I don’t want them interested.”

O’Keeffe was right about this place, and she was right about us: We’re interested. Now more than ever, we crave the fresh air, the fresh experiences, the wide-open spaces, the sky and wind, the soul reawakening that only a place like The City Different and its surroundings can offer. We need to reinvigorate our senses and start over. Here’s how to uncover your different in Santa Fe.
