  • We enjoyed a picnic in the park and then walked in to the cemetery to see the grave of Scout Kit Carson (1809- 1868), his wife, and other family members. An American flag flies over the site. The ceme...  more »

  • I like coming here in the summer to sit down under the trees in the shade and read a book
  • We went to the park to see the Mavericks and Dwight Yokum. I don't have much of a review about the park but was disappointed by the set up of the music event. We got to the venue at 4:30 and waited in line, finally got in at 6:45. Missed the first band. The gates didn't open until 5:30 and there was 6000 people attending. They needed to open the gates earlier.
  • They opened gates 1/2 hour prior to concert. Due to the amount of people going in, it took us 1 & 1/2 hours to get in. We missed the opening act. Then there was high back chairs and umbrellas in front of us.. they weren't prepared for that large of a crowd. I would never attend anything at this park.
  • Such a wonderful drive! Don't miss out!
  • Love, Love, Love that the Town of Taos has world class concerts in the park during summer months. Keep them coming Taos!

Where to stay in Taos

Taos offers a wealth of accommodations right in town and in the surrounding area. Plenty of small inns, bed and breakfasts, and hotels lie in and around the business district, but your options greatly expand when you consider renting a small house or an apartment. Where you stay depends on what you come for. If you want to use Taos as a base for seeing local sites, opt for accommodation within the city limits. If you plan to spend most of your time in the mountains, the Valdez and Arroyo Seco areas are convenient. Staying between these areas and downtown puts you close to the Taos Pueblo Indian Lands.
