Mayor’s Youth Advisory Board Comes Up with 100 Things to Do in Santa Fe

Mayor’s Youth Advisory Board Comes Up with 100 Things to Do in Santa Fe

The Mayor’s Youth Advisory Board came up with 100 of their favorite things to do in and around Santa Fe. The beautiful City of Santa Fe offers the community so many fun things to do. Contrary to the popular belief of the youth that there is nothing to do in Santa Fe (or any city for that matter), Teens could grab a friend and get some ice-cream in the plaza or take a hike with their family.
