“Georgeous Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Scenery was spectacular. Angel Fire is a paradise. Don't miss the Vietnam Memorial at Angel Fire. It is the first memorial in the United States to remember those who served and died in Vietnam. Don't miss it.

“Enchanting for sure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Great drive, winding through a National Forest - especially beautiful as the aspens begin to change colors. Lots of small towns, small streams, wildlife.

“A Very Scenic Drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The enchanted circle drive is a lot of fun. On the way we took a detour to the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge and the Millicent Rogers museum, then continued on the circle drive. You see a lot of the high country around Taos and it is time well spent. Be sure to see the Vietnam Memorial for a moving experience.

“What a ride!”

If you want to see all of the small towns, this is a must see. Take you time and stop and enjoy the views.

“Beautiful scenery and lots of curves”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

This was a really nice drive but there is not much to stop for along the way. We did enjoy the Rio Grande bridge which is not exactly on the circle and spent the most time there of any of our stops. I found Red River the most interesting town with Eagle Nest second. My husband loved the driving - only bemoaning the fact that he was not doing it on a motorcycle. I would not have wanted to drive here.
