SANTA FE, NM - Today, TIME recognized Santa Fe as one of 100 extraordinary travel destinations across the globe in its third annual list of the World’s Greatest Places.

Santa Fe was one of just 19 destinations from the U.S. selected for TIME's World's Greatest Places of 2021.

"New Mexico destinations like Santa Fe epitomize the essence of adventure steeped in culture," Cabinet Secretary Jen Paul Schroer said. "From the countless art galleries, museums, restaurants and shops to world-class lodging options to the plethora of nearby outdoor experiences, Santa Fe has a bit of everything to offer the venturesome traveler."

To compile this list, TIME solicited nominations of places—including countries, regions, cities and towns—from its international network of correspondents and contributors, with an eye toward those offering new and exciting experiences.

The special edition of TIME's World's Greatest Places will be available on newsstands July 23, 2021. See the full list  of TIME's World's Greatest Places of 2021 here.
