Exploring Santa Fe, NM : Can one place have too much adobe style architecture with turquoise accents
Place looks nice from this video but I think I'd go crazy after spending just a few hours there. How can people live there? I think it suffers from a lot of the same things other upscale touristy towns in the US do (Newport, RI I'm looking at you).
What do my fellow DLers think about this place?

I actually kinda liked it -- but I visited there in 1997.

I was thinking of visiting in February. How the weather then?

I just visited for the first time this year. New Mexico is stunningly beautiful. The area receives enough precipitation to support hardwood trees and flowers but it's still the desert; the contrast between the two is often breathtaking. Go in autumn if you can when the hardwood trees all turn gold.
That being said, Santa Fe is exactly what you said, a bougie town catering to wealthier people from elsewhere. It's not big by any means and the Wild West is right outside town. Rent a car and drive out to Taos, Los Alamos and Albuquerque, which is a fantastic quirky place, like a desert Baltimore.

Visited in 2015, would love to go back. Beautiful!

In Santa Fe all seems to breathe freedom and peace, and to make one forget the world and its sad turmoils.

All houses should look like that, I like it. I’ve got a red tile roof Mediterranean/Spanish style house. It’s easy to maintain. Tile floors and no carpet, yay!
