a santa fe treasure

August 30th, 2011

We’ve all daydreamed about striking it rich with that pot of gold, and now it looks like there is a chance to live out our Captain Jack Sparrow fantasies in none other than the City Different! After being diagnosed with what he thought was fatal cancer in 1998, Forrest Fenn, a famous Santa Fe art dealer, claims to have hidden a chest full of loot, $2 million to be exact, in the sands of the New Mexican desert. Instead of using an old-fashioned map to lead treasure hunters to the X, Fenn published a memoir titled The Thrill of the Chase that supposedly contains all of the clues needed to find his desert fortune.

It just so happens that Santa Fe’s treasured small hotel, the Inn on the Alameda, is the perfect place to plant one’s self when searching for Santa Fe’s hidden cache! Nestled in the heart of the city, there is no better spot for taking advantage of all of Santa Fe’s cultural charms while chasing down those clues. After a long day of fortune hunting, the Inn is a great place to relax and rejuvenate, and we promise that a stay at  Inn on the Alameda is a treasure within itself!
