Santa Fe, NM

New Mexico’s capital is known for its art galleries and ambrosial restaurants, which are housed in the town’s iconic Pueblo-style edifices. While there, make sure to visit the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum to look at the artist’s legacy and connection to American Modernism.

Park City, UT

Ensconced in Utah’s postcard-pretty Wasatch Mountains, Park City is a charming ski town that is great for every season. In addition to Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort — two spots that are perfect for winter sports and then hiking in the summer — the town hosts an assemblage of farm-to-table restaurants and trendy boutiques on its main street.
