Moving to Santa Fe—The Basics.
City Population: 70,000
Metro Area Population: 171,000
Average Commute: less than 20 minutes
Transportation: Santa Fe Municipal Airport, Santa Fe Biking Trails, New Mexico Rail Runner Express (Train service between Santa Fe and Albuquerque), and Albuquerque International Sunport (about 1 hour from Santa Fe).

Situated between the Santa Fe and Carson National Forests in northern New Mexico, Santa Fe is about 63 miles northeast of Albuquerque. The climate is dry, and residents can expect to experience all four seasons. Because of the altitude at 7,000 feet, summer nights can also be cool, dropping 30 degrees from the daily high. Six to eight major snowfalls annually and the Rocky Mountain foothills generally enable skiing between Thanksgiving and April.

Described as a small town with big city amenities, Santa Fe’s small population doesn’t hinder business growth due to tourism. Listed as a top traveling destination, more than 1 million visitors travel to Santa Fe annually. Tourism continues to grow and is a large contributor to the local economy. Santa Fe’s unique history, architectural style, and ample visual and performing arts centers earned it the nickname “The City Different.”

Moving to Santa Fe—What Makes Santa Fe the “City Different”?

  • Founded in the early 17th century, Santa Fe is one of the nation’s oldest cities, and serves as New Mexico’s state capital.

  • There are more than twelve major museums in art, history and culture, and over 200 art galleries in the area.
  • Santa Fe is included among UNESCO’s Creative Cities, which keeps Santa Fe connected to other cities and opportunities that support creative and cultural development on a global scale.
  • Area institutes, research centers, and companies in science and technology such as the Santa Fe Institute, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, and Info Mesa companies, make Santa Fe a flourishing location for hosting conferences, lectures, and building a technological commercial industry.
