About Taos

As the only living Native American community that can boast being a World Heritage Site and a National Historic Landmark, Taos is a fascinating location to learn about the history who have been living in the area for thousands of years. When exploring Taos, you will take a step back in time, starting with Taos Pueblo. Here you will find homes built between 1000-1450 A.D. and are still used today! You must also visit the 300-year-old Taos Plaza and its surrounding Taos Historic District. Taos features a variety of museums where you can learn about art and history. Don’t forget that Taos is also a popular winter destination! Taos Ski Valley offers numerous ski trails and lessons if you are looking to enjoy this sport! During the summer, you can head out into nature at Williams Lake, the Wild Rivers Recreation Area, or even cuddle up with an adorable llama at the Wild Earth Llama Adventures.
