You drive into Santa Fe and pass by the lovely Inn at Loretto. This is one of the more spectacular hotels in Santa Fe. Even if you can't arrange a room here, John informs you that there are 4,500 hotel and motel rooms, as well as bed and breakfasts in Santa Fe. John continues to tell you many more things about Santa Fe as you drive around the town. You already know that Santa Fe is the capital of New Mexico, but did you know that New Mexico was one of the last states to join the United States, in 1912?
John points out that many people think that New Mexico is a foreign destination. Seeing how many tourists visit Santa Fe each year, you get the idea that not many people are fooled.
