America's Best Cities: Santa Fe

Danny Lehman/ Corbis

No. 2 Santa Fe

Voters clearly don’t come to Santa Fe looking for a raucous time; it landed in the bottom 10 for its happy hours. But the No. 2 favorite outperformed most other cities when it came to cultured, mellow pursuits, such as checking out art galleries (rated No. 4), appreciating architecture, and browsing the top-rated independent shops. “Curators of Santa Fe’s boutiques are true global nomads,” reader John Clifford posted to T+L on Facebook. “They travel from Bangkok to Bali to Beirut for an international mix.”
