My husband and I decided to spend a long weekend in Taos for Memorial Day. We are moving out of the state later this year and are trying to experience some parts of the state we haven't seen. I know we plan to raft the Taos box on Satuday, see the Gorge and he wants to do some driving and hiking. Otherwise we'll probably just relax and try to find some good places to eat.
I need help with two things:
First, we are looking at two rental homes within walking distance of the plaza/downtown. Just trying to decide if that's a good place to locate ourselves for the weekend. Since we're unfamiliar with Taos, I don't know if that's what non-skiing travelers do or if the more remote locations are just as good of a bet for a weekend in Taos.
Second, any other suggestions for "must sees" for our one (and possibly only) trip to the area?
