We all interpret the term “romantic” in different ways. For some, it might be a cafe in Paris; for others, a mountain retreat; a few would pick a beach with a rum drink and crashing waves. But we totally get why Dallas Voice readers selected Santa Fe as their favorite place to escape with a romantic partner. A small city (barely 50,000) with tons of history (one of the oldest towns in the U.S., at 400-plus years) and a dry, warm climate, it is filled with outdoor options (hiking through the pueblos is a hoot) as well as a fine arts community (the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, pictured, is a must visit, but current local artisans abound as well). There’s a spiritual calm to the city that really gets you in the mood for l’amour.
