Santa Fe, NM – Voted #2 Best Small City

2.  Santa Fe, NM

Santa Fe serves as both New Mexico’s political and creative capital: Wander its wide streets flanked by adobe houses, and you’ll begin to see why artists like Georgia O’Keeffe were so inspired by this eclectic and historic town. (Traveler readers also can’t stay away—Santa Fe is a regular on our best-of-the-U.S. list.)
