America's Best Cities for Fall Travel

America's Best Cities for Fall Travel: Santa Fe

John Huba

Santa Fe

You know it's chile harvest season in this southwestern city by the smell of roasted peppers emanating from roadside stands. A few great places to try them, in a non-taco format: gastropub Fire & Hops, which tops its poutine with cheese curds, bacon, and green chile gravy; and new café Kitchen Window, where the Red Chile Brownie is accented with peppers and candied pecans. In early October, it’s a quick drive to hike the foliage-lined Aspen Vista trail, about 14 miles from downtown, or take in the “hot air” at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.
