Join local author and film historian Jeff Berg as he offers
information, hints, and tips for visitors and locals alike
from his latest book, 100 Things To Do in Santa Fe Before You Die.

First inhabited by Pueblo Indians as early as 1050,
Santa Fe has been delighting residents and visitors with its one-of-a-kind environment for nearly a thousand years. With so much natural wonder to explore and a burgeoning arts scene, “The City Different” has become a top travel destination.

100 Things To Do in Santa Fe Before You Die provides an insider’s eye for the main
attractions and the sights you might otherwise miss in New Mexico’s capital city. Find the best museums among the city’s many offerings, like the New Mexico History Museum covering everything from folk art to bugs, or browse a few of the hundreds of art galleries. Learn about the Oldest House in the USA and the best way to experience Santa Fe’s many festivals, such as Las Posadas. Like farmers markets? Santa Fe’s own amazing Farmers Market boasts a year-round bounty of plants, art, produce, and even composting worms. Movie buffs love Santa Fe for its studios and independent movie houses, including the Jean Cocteau Cinema, owned by author George R. R. Martin. Whatever your passion, local author and film historian Jeff Berg will help you discover it in Santa Fe, with his twenty-five years of experience living and writing in New Mexico. With his hints and tips for visitors, would-be residents, and locals alike, you’ll find boundless information about this beautiful city in the Sangre de Cristo foothills.
