Visiting Santa Fe

2015 August, Santa Fe & New Mexico Voted the Best

August 24, 2015: USA Today 10Best Reader’s Choice has voted Santa Fe and New Mexico among the nation’s best, right on time for chile roasting and harvest season.

The New Mexico Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail, including many notable Santa Fe stops, came in #1 for Best Food Trail, and the Santa Fe Farmers Market—selected by the USDA this month as the launch market for National Farmers Market Week—came in as #6 Best Farmers Market.

The two contests have a natural link in that so much of the best green chile is available at the Farmers Market and the September 10 Green Chile Cheeseburger Smackdown will take place right in the Market Pavilion in The Railyard.

USA Today 10Best continues to honor the high quality across the many categories that make Santa Fe one of the top destinations in the nation—three new and very different votes began last week:
Everyone is invited to vote every day on any device through Monday, September 14.

USA Today 10Best Reader’s Choice recently selected Santa Fe for #1 and #4 Best Art Festivals—The International Folk Art Market and ART Santa Fe respectively—and three of the top ten Best Hotel Spas: La Posada, Inn & Spa At Loretto, and Four Seasons Rancho Encantado. Earlier in the year, The Santa Fe Railyard Arts District was voted #6 Best U.S. Arts District.

Santa Fe is one of the world’s most awarded destinations. For a complete list, please visit santafe.org/Media/Awards_Articles/index.html.
