Meow Wolf 

This weird and wonderful technology-oriented art exhibit/science-fiction adventure is one of the most Instagrammable places in Santa Fe. While Meow Wolf may not contain the unique history or architecture of the area, there are tons of bright, vibrant, and quirky art showcases.  

Loretto Chapel 

If you want to make sure you bring home a couple of pictures capturing the City Different’s religious roots, make sure you stop at Loretto Chapel. The winding and architecturally baffling Miraculous Staircase is one of the most mesmerizing images in town. 

The Cross of Martyrs 

A morning walk up to the Cross of Martyrs is a great way to start your day in Santa Fe. Capture the sun rising over the heart of town. It’s one of the most Instragrammable moments in the city. 

Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument 

Other-worldly treasures await you in Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. Dozens of white rock cones tower over a beautiful gorge filled with winding pathways offering fantastic hikes and photo-ops. 

Museum Hill 

Museum Hill is home to a collection of the best museums in Santa Fe. Places like the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture and the Museum of International Folk Art offer insight into local Native American history. Snap some pictures of the beautiful art and artifacts before walking across the street to the Santa Fe Botanical Garden to view the diverse landscapes, flora, and fauna of the region. 

The Sangre de Cristo Mountains 

The Sangre de Cristo Mountains are home to some of the most stunning natural scenery in Northern New Mexico. You can explore the beautiful landscapes on a collection of trails like the Atalaya Upper and Lower Trailheads and the Dale Ball Trails. Each provides scenic viewpoints and tons of Instagram-worthy places.
