Readers of Conde Nast Traveler recently voted for their favorite cities* worldwide – and Santa Fe is #17!

We’re tied with Sidney, Australia and Victoria, Canada for the #17 spot.  Pretty good company for our little town.

Santa Fe was described as “pure magic;” a “heaven where souls vacation.” “Go for the atmosphere, architecture, food, and open spaces,” said one reader, or “take a whole day to explore the galleries.”

The only U.S. city to outrank Santa Fe was Charleston, SC.  And the #1 city on the list?  San Miguel De Allende, Mexico.

As a friend said recently:  “If I didn’t live in Santa Fe, I’d come here on vacation!”
