Santa Fe, N.M.

This New Mexico city is best known for its landscapes and its Native American handicrafts. Places like SITE Santa Fe and the Center for Contemporary Arts put a more modern spin on the local creative culture. 

Santa Fe's art scene doesn't totally revolve around a single neighborhood or museum. It's the many niche museums and galleries that make this such an interesting culture destination. Places like the international Museum of Folk Art, the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art and the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum are just a few of the exhibit spaces that bring something unique to art lovers. Many local artists have open houses at their studios one weekend each year, allowing people to get a glimpse into one of America's great arts scenes.
