t’s easy to forget the bounty of cultural offerings a city like Santa Fe offers. For me, a reminder came recently aboard a Southwest Airlines plane, after I picked up a copy of their in-flight magazine, Spirit. Designed, like all of its counterparts, to lure visitors to top destinations—and empty the pockets of their respective tourism offices—the glossy mag included a seven-page spread on New Mexico. It tipped its hat to our “treasure trove of attractions,” and referred to our own backyard as a “real-life playground.” It also served as a reminder that, for us lucky enough to live here, a world-class experience is but a short drive or walk away (take that, Flagstaff!).
