Travel + Leisure 2018 Awards - Santa Fe Top City“We’re honored to be recognized year after year by the travel-savvy readers of Travel + Leisure, and feel that it reflects Santa Fe’s commitment to provide a truly authentic experience for people interested in culture, history, the arts, cuisine, one-of-a-kind shopping, the outdoors, rejuvenation and wellness,” said TOURISM Santa Fe Executive Director Randy Randall. “The Santa Fe community works incredibly hard every day to make this a reality, and we thank the thousands of readers who voted.”

The awards are based on a survey of the magazine’s 300,000 readers who represent people who love to travel.

The top 5 cities were:

1. Charleston, South Carolina
2. New Orleans
3. Savannah Georgia
4. Santa Fe, New Mexico
5. New York City

Every year, Travel + Leisure surveys its travel readers for a special World’s Best report based on their world ventures. Santa Fe consistently ranks high in the annual voting for being a top destination for travelers.

Travel + Leisure did the survey in conjunction with research firm M&RR. Magazine readers were invited to fill out an online survey. Surveys identified as fraudulent were thrown out. The rest were tallied into a final score based on reader experiences related to things like sights and landmarks, culture, food, value, shopping, and friendliness. The survey took place between November 6, 2017 and March 5, 2018.

The award winners appear in the August 2018 print edition of Travel + Leisure.
