Read an Excerpt

Cities of Enchantment



New Mexico's tagline is more than a marketing cliche. The state is truly a "Land of Enchantment,"
and Santa Fe is indisputably "the City Different." Surrounded by mind-expanding mountain views and
filled with sinuous streets that discourage car traffic but invite leisurely exploration, Santa Fe
welcomes with characteristic warmth, if not some trepidation.



Despite a surfeit of trendy restaurants, galleries, and boutiques that tout regional fare and wares,
both authentic and artificial, Santa Fe remains a special place to visit. Commercialism notwithstanding,
its deeply spiritual aura affects even nonreligious types in surprising ways, inspiring a reverance
probably not unlike that which inspired the Spanish monks to name it the "City of Holy Faith."



If Santa Fe is spiritual, sophisticated, and occasionally superficial, Taos, 65 mi. away, is very much
an outpost despite its relative proximity to the capital. Compared with Santa Fe, Taos is smaller,
feistier, quirkier, tougher, and very independent. Rustic and delightfully unpretentious, the town contains
a handful of upscale restaurants with cuisines and wine lists as innovative as what you might find in
New York.



First-time visitors to Santa Fe and Taos discover the unexpected pleasures of a place where time is
measured not by linear calculations of hours, days, weeks, and years but in a circular sweep of crop
cycles, gestation periods, the rotation of generations, and the changing of the seasons.
