Town of Taos

The true spirit of the Southwest is alive in Taos, New Mexico. Immerse yourself in the rich culture and heritage, rooted in centuries of history. Soak in the blue skies and sun that shines over 300 days a year- perfect for outdoor activities. Breathe in the sage-scented, high desert air, and you’ll understand why Taos is a destination like no other.

Taos is a delight to visit, offering an unhurried pace and charm. The historic Taos Plaza is the center of a wonderful cluster of shops, galleries, eateries and adobe architecture that creates the perfect place for a stroll. For a taste of Native American culture, head to the Taos Pueblo, a multi-tiered structure continuously inhabited for more than 1,000 years. Visit Taos Ski Valley for unparalleled skiing in the winter, and in the summer, enjoy a multitude of adventures in the cool of the forest.

Taos is especially magical during Christmastime, thanks to the mix of cultural traditions. The historic Ledoux Street lights up with thousands of luminarias (paper lanterns) during the holidays, and Taos Pueblo has a unique and beautiful celebration on Christmas Eve.

A colorful array of tiny towns surrounding Taos offers more opportunities for discovery, including the sacred and healing waters of Ojo Caliente.
