Santa Fe, incorporated in 1978, is a growing community in the heart of Galveston County that truly enjoys the best of three worlds.

Located 5 miles west of I-45, Santa Fe is a rural bedroom community free of the congestion of the big city. Just a 20-minute jaunt to the south, one can enjoy the beaches, seasonal actinides and lifestyle of Galveston Island. Turn to the north, and in just 20 minutes, you can experience the culture of the fourth largest city in the nation in Houston. Three major highways run through the city, as well as the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad. Santa Fe is a city that “Honors the past and imagines the future.”
