‘Time’ names Santa Fe one

of World’s Greatest Places

Third time’s the charm for Santa Fe.

The city is one of 20 U.S. places to make the third Time magazine’s World’s Greatest Places list.

The list has 100 entries, and each year Time has 100 new entrants. Time debuted the annual list in 2018, had its second list in 2019 and skipped 2020 due to the pandemic.

The magazine taglined the Santa Fe entry as “Monument to the Southwest,” making specific mention of the newly opened Bishop’s Lodge, Auberge Resort Collection . Also mentioned were the Railyard and tenants Bosque Brewing Company and Opuntia Cafe. The piece went on to note the Santa Fe Fat Tire Society and its building a 5-mile loop for bikers at Galisteo Basin Preserve.

Santa Fe. Nice place to visit, but lucky if you don't live here unless you are in the upper echelon of income.

An obscenely overpriced resort and a brewery are the things that Time believes distinguish Santa Fe as a great city? Really? How about our arts and culture: the SF Opera, Canyon Rd., and Museum Hill? How about world-class restaurants? All set in a breathtaking landscape.

No resort or restaurant is 'obscenely overpriced.' Fortunately, the US is driven by a capitalist engine and not by the sweet, sticky, sickly fumes from the sewer of socialism. One of the absolute best values that are part of the foundation of the US is individual freedom: if you don't want to go to Bishops Lodge (or eat at a certain restaurant or purchase anything you believe is more expensive than you can afford) then don't go. And yes, having 4 star and 5 star resorts and restaurants augmenting our arts and cultural scene all placed in our natural environment does help distinguish Santa Fe as a great city.

I sold my house in March as Santa Fe is so special. Fanta Se is a joke thats turned in one out control sanctuary city with a burgeoning rate of homelessness and rising violent crime invaded by California progressives.
