    By watching the video before touring, the visitor gets a better appreciation of the Kit Carson, his house, and his family. Interesting period.  more »

    The park is an awesome place for a music festival! This was our second year to attend and we had an amazing time!  more »

    Lots of shade and picnic benches. They have both a toddler and an adolescent play area. Lots of space to play. Lots of weeds, too.

    Beautiful spot, loved camping here minus quiet hour shenanigans from some of the other campers

    Saw Alabama Shakes here and they were phenomenal! As for the venue: it's easy to get out and in. Very casual and chill. The lines to get booze were very long, but sometimes that's a good thing. Food trucks were adequate. Good sound and a pretty amazing outdoor stage. There was free parking at the courthouse, which was about a mile from the show. Closer than that, some places wanted $20 to park for the evening. If you're attending a big show in Taos book your hotel rooms early (as in the day you buy the concert ticket), everything will sell out.

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.
