A Bit of Santa Fe History
As the country's oldest capital city, Santa Fe is infused with tremendous historic and cultural attractions. Not to mention, it's simply a beautiful place with temperate weather year-round. The elevation helps keep the gorgeous weather moderate.
Nicknamed the Sunshine State for good reason, New Mexico averages more than 280 days of sunshine annually. July is the hottest month, but never really breaks the triple digit mark. January is the coolest month of the year.
Santa Fe's Award-Winning Beauty
Santa Fe's surrounding countryside is breathtaking in its beauty. AARP Magazine named Santa Fe as one of the Top 15 places in the U.S. to retire, and essentially "reinvent yourself" to gain maximum enjoyment from those golden retirement years. In fact, the city continuously receives awards and accolades as a cultural mecca, a simply gorgeous locale surrounded by the splendor of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, one of the most striking ranges in the Rockies. Santa Fe has also been voted America's healthiest city by Organic Magazine in 2003. So retiring in Santa Fe makes extremely good sense on multiple levels.
Outdoor Recreation Beyond Compare

You'll also find great rock climbing, hiking, river rafting, bicycling, skiing, fishing and camping in and around Santa Fe. Active retirees love it here!
