<b>My perspective:</b> Santa Fe once was a true artists' colony, with such greats as <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PEHST001489" title="Georgia O'Keeffe" href="/topic/arts-culture/georgia-okeeffe-PEHST001489.topic">Georgia O'Keeffe</a> among its residents. Now it's just a bad art tourist trap. It feels like a cross between Knott's Berry Farm and Disneyland. The city is so concerned with preserving the pueblo look that it is now dominated by a look that is more theme architecture than authentic environment.<br>

My perspective: Santa Fe once was a true artists' colony, with such greats as Georgia O'Keeffe among its residents. Now it's just a bad art tourist trap. It feels like a cross between Knott's Berry Farm and Disneyland. The city is so concerned with preserving the pueblo look that it is now dominated by a look that is more theme architecture than authentic environment.

Suggested alternative: Mesa Verde National Park, Colo.
