Our home away from home

So much to do, so much to see. So stimulating and relaxing at the same time. Art, good food and friendly people.

We live in Amarillo, Tx and this is the perfect town for us to escape to over a weekend. There is lots of camping throughout the mountains above Taos (Angel fire, red river, even closer to Taos), as well as hiking and day trip trails. There are excellent places to eat and plenty of coffee and bakeries. There are several... More

Loved this little town. Lots of shopping, fun adventures to have and you can go during the summer for the shopping and river rafting, hiking or the winter for the skiing. There are several places to find fine dining. Nice parks to have picnic in. Find plenty of treasures here.

We come to Taos for the art, the dining, good lodging choices and a classic New Mexican small city atmosphere.

The town square has many art dealers where one can view Southwestern art at its best. Don't miss the Farmer's Market! Awesome fresh fruits and veggies and fresh baked breads and cheeses. The yak cheese was very interesting!

Loved the art and history. But prices are what you would expect from a tourist industry. Lovely parks and square.

After staying in Santa Fe, I was very excited to drive to Taos. I heard a lot before about it. The day we drove, there was an annual parade in downtown. I was so disappointed about Taos plaza and Taos. Not worth to visit.

Old Historic Taos, New Mexico is a must see if you want to get a real idea of how Taos, New Mexico began. Walking is a must if you want to experience it all. Parking is a premium. Take advantage of the dirt free public parking areas just outside of the city. Begin by walking up "Kit Carson" Rd and... More

Taos is one of my favorite places in New Mexico and less hectic than downtown Santa Fe. Here you can find charming bed & breakfasts, such as La Posada de Taos, within walking distance of the Plaza. The Taos Inn is another lovely place to stay. Then, of course, there is the scenery, especially if you have taken the high... More

I love this town. Less hectic than Santa Fe, lots of good restaurants of every type, museums, artist co-ops and beautiful flowers along the sidewalks.
