Taos

Trip Planner USA  /  New Mexico  /  Taos County  /  Taos
(4.1/5 based on 10,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, historic sites, scenic drive
Many residents have shunned fast-paced city living for Taos's laid-back vibe and blend of Spanish, Native American, and Anglo cultures. Attractions including art galleries, boutiques offering traditional Native American pottery and jewelry, historical homes, museums, and gourmet restaurants occupy adobe buildings in the business district. Set amid towering mountains and wild rivers, this town is known for the traditional Native American village on the outskirts. Advanced skiers arrive in winter to challenge themselves on the slopes, and hikers hit the trails of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in summer. The town of about 6,000 is a draw for photographers year-round as they strive to capture the town's atmosphere and the surrounding area's natural beauty. With our custom trip planner, United States vacations can be built around trips to Taos and other destinations in United States.

Where to stay

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.
