Best Solo Vacations: Santa Fe Makes The List
Santa Fe makes traveling on your own simple and spectacular.
U.S.NEWS names Santa Fe number seven among thirty of the best places for a solo vacation and we couldn’t agree more!
There are many reasons to travel solo, from not having to coordinate with others’ schedules to getting to spend time doing only what interests you most. We’ve always heard people who have never traveled alone often describe their first solo trip as an almost religious experience. To take in new surroundings unfiltered by the prejudices, tastes, or preferences of a traveling companion can be heady stuff. Traveling alone gives you the chance to indulge yourself fully.
Solo travelers looking for clear skies should consider visiting Santa Fe, New Mexico. Offering an average of 325 days of sunshine per year, our beautiful city, which is the oldest capital in the United States, is known for its art scene and beautiful scenery. Visitors can go hiking or skiing or check out more than 20 museums, such as iconic Canyon Road’s Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. To reach the city, you can fly into Santa Fe Regional Airport on American Airlines or United Airlines or into Albuquerque International Sunport before catching the Sandia Shuttle to Santa Fe. Travelers can then get around on foot, by bike or via the city’s bus system.
