Visiting Santa Fe

2016 July, Sunset Magazine Declares Santa Fe Best Shopping Destination

July 21, 2016: Santa Fe has been declared the Best Shopping Destination by Time Inc.’s Sunset, the premier guide to living in the West. This is the second year of the Sunset Travel Awards, which honor the West’s top destinations. The city also finished in the Final Four as Best Food Town. Other Final Four winners were Santa Fe Spirits for Best Microbrewery Or Distillery and Ten Thousand Waves for Best Girlfriend Getaway Destination/Spa.

Santa Fe and the other winners are featured in the August issue of Sunset and on Sunset.com, reaching almost five million consumers per month.

“Sunset is the travel authority in the West,” said Irene Edwards, Editor-In-Chief of the magazine. “Our 2016 Travel Award winners represent the best of the best.”

Randy Randall, Executive Director for TOURISM Santa Fe, said “Centuries ago, traders traveled El Camino Real and then the Santa Fe Trail to bring essential goods and luxury items to Santa Fe—the west’s great trading and cultural hub. The rails and Route 66 succeeded these routes, also bringing in waves of creative artists, and the tradition continued.”

“Today, Santa Fe’s many world-class annual markets, endless display of Native American, Spanish and Anglo art, and one-of-a-kind handmade treasures in hundreds of galleries and shops highlight any visit to The City Different,” Randall continued. “We’re honored and delighted that our magnificent shops and shopping experiences have been designated the best of the best by Sunset Magazine with its rich tradition and history as the leading lifestyle brand in the West.”
