A little about Taos

Throughout our long history, Taos has been a destination for travelers wanting the powerful experience of seeing new places and meeting new people. When you get to Taos, you can get a sense of these ancestors of present-day Taoseños by taking a stroll through the historic district, see our galleries, shops and restuarants. Taos adventures are infinite. Magnificent landscapes and natural surroundings invite an endless possibility of outdoor adventures from adrenaline-filled rafting on the Rio Grande and breathtaking moonlit snowshoeing to hiking picturesque mountain peaks and world-class downhill skiing. The inspirational and indescribable “Taos light” has compelled many to make Taos home.
