From movie sets to fashion shoots, Santa Fe’s dramatic desert landscape attracts a wealth of stars year-round.

A long-time haven for artists and outdoor adventurers, Santa Fe is a definitive celebrity hot spot. Maggie Gyllenhaal and Jeff Bridges are both nominated for Academy Awards this year for Crazy Heart, which was filmed in and around Santa Fe. Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant also spent time in the city recently filming Did You Hear About the Morgans?.

Filmmakers and design fans alike love Santa Fe’s distinctive adobe-style architecture. The city’s history stretches back more than 2,000 years to the Pueblos Native Americans, its culture complemented more recently by strong Mexican and Spanish influences.
