Many residents have shunned fast-paced city living for Taos's laid-back vibe and blend of Spanish, Native American, and Anglo cultures.
Step out of Taos to go to Red River and see Horseback Riding Tours, which is approximately 50 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, cruise along The Low Road From Taos and Santa Fe, make a trip to Taos County Courthouse Murals, and soar above the sights with a balloon tour.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Taos trip tool .

In July, daily temperatures in Taos can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 52°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sun) so you can travel back home.

Santa Fe continuously ranks among the world's top holiday destinations, attracting visitors with its unusual combination of scenic beauty, rich history, cultural diversity, and high concentration of performing arts venues, fine restaurants, and interesting attractions.
Loretto Chapel has been added to your itinerary. On the 22nd (Mon), make a trip to Meow Wolf, don't miss a visit to Canyon Road, then contemplate the long history of Loretto Chapel, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi. Here are some ideas for day two: explore the world behind art at Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, contemplate the long history of Santa Fe Plaza, then see the interesting displays at Museum of International Folk Art, and finally relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Santa Fe trip simple and quick.

You can drive from Taos to Santa Fe in 1.5 hours. Another option is to take a bus. Traveling from Taos in July, expect a bit warmer with lows of 60°F in Santa Fe. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 24th (Wed) to allow time for the car ride back home.
