Every year, thousands of tourists with open pocketbooks flock to Santa Fe for its multiple culture festivals, opera shows and art galleries.
The City Different consistently tops lists as one of the country’s best
destinations for food, wine and culture. In 2011, Condé Nast named Santa
Fe the third best place to visit in the United States. This year, the
city was chosen over Lake Tahoe and others to host the International
Mountain Biking World Summit, a highlight Mayor David Coss emphasized in
his annual State of the City address this past fall.
“This is a great place for active, outdoor vacations,” Coss said in the
October speech, “for nature and environmentally friendly travel; for
food, wine, spas, wellness, art, culture and history.”
