What is it like living in Taos?
Routinely found on “best of” lists, Taos, New Mexico, is a spectacular mountain town full of culture, tradition, and adventure. Home to a world-class ski resort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and majestic landscape, Taos has become the Soul of the Southwest and a destination for distinctive cuisine, a thriving music scene, and (of course) natural beauty.
Culture: Without doubt, Taos is a mecca for artists and visionaries. From the rich artistic and cultural Pueblo and Spanish heritages to the influences brought in recent years from every corner of the globe, there is something to take in, enjoy, and contemplate on every street corner in Taos.
Tradition: Located in northern New Mexico, Taos is also known for historic adobe structures and galleries/museums that showcase regional artwork and preserve Native American history. It takes time to explore 1000 years of history, but if you want to start at the beginning, Taos Pueblo is the only living Native American community designated both a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a National Historic Landmark.
Adventure: With 300+ days of sunshine and over 1,000 square miles of public wilderness land, adventure is always calling in Taos. Take a plunge in the beautiful Ro Grande, test your strength at rock climbing, explore the outdoors on horseback, or hit the slopes for some skiing—the possibilities are endless!
