April 11, 2018 – Voting is now open for the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, an annual poll by one of the most influential travel magazines that allows consumers to rank their travel experiences across categories including cities, hotels, resorts, restaurants, ski resorts and many more. Santa Fe is a contender in the category of “Cities,” and several Santa Fe businesses appear in the hotel, ski resort and restaurant categories.

The public can vote by going to www.cntraveler.com/rca/vote and clicking on the categories they would like to submit their vote for.
