My Solo Holiday in Santa Fe:
My solo Christmas in Santa Fe was great. There was just enough snow for a White Christmas. The room i booked had a wood-burning fireplace. (Be sure to ask ahead of time if you would like to have a fire in your room rather than in the communal lobby.)
Everything was walking distance. There were endless cafes and shops to explore. Better yet? Santa Fe has retained much of its original architecture. Most impressive was the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi.
