Santa Fe has a special charm to it as a Mexican town located here in the US. It is the oldest state capital in North America. The original colony was established by the Spanish conquistador Don Pedro de Peralta in 1610. The heart of the city is the Central Plaza, around which the town revolves. Santa Fe is a quaint town with a poplulation of 68,000 that is not sure if it is a small town or a larger city. Sixty miles by highway from Albuquerque, it sits in the mountains at an elevation of 7000 feet so it is not as hot as most people think of when they think of summer in New Mexico. Dogs like the cooler temperatures as well. Santa Fe is a dog-friendly town, with unique B&B lodgings, small hotels and specialty lodging and shops.
