Many residents have shunned fast-paced city living for Taos's laid-back vibe and blend of Spanish, Native American, and Anglo cultures.
Do your shopping at Enchanted Circle Pottery and Rottenstone Pottery. Get some cultural insight at Taos Pueblo and Fort Union National Monument. Get out of town with these interesting Taos side-trips: Vietnam Veterans Memorial (in Angel Fire), Red River (Kenneth Wyatt Gallery & Horseback Riding Tours) and Tesuque Glassworks (in Santa Fe). The adventure continues: snap pictures at Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, take a memorable drive along Enchanted Circle Drive, take in the exciting artwork at Las Comadres, and explore the world behind art at Millicent Rogers Museum.

To find maps, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Taos trip planning site.

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Taos. September in Taos sees daily highs of 76°F and lows of 44°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Wed) so you can go by car to Albuquerque.

Albuquerque remains one of the state's secret jewels, as its tourist attractions are often overshadowed by the more popular holiday destination of Santa Fe.
Start off your visit on the 26th (Thu): explore the striking landscape at Petroglyph National Monument, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at San Felipe de Neri Church, and then get to know the fascinating history of Albuquerque Old Town. On the next day, get a taste of the local shopping with Nedra Matteucci Galleries, then explore the world behind art at Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, then steep yourself in history at Loretto Chapel, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi.

For more things to do, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, use the Albuquerque trip itinerary maker website.

Traveling by car from Taos to Albuquerque takes 3 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or take a shuttle. Traveling from Taos in September, expect Albuquerque to be a bit warmer, temps between 83°F and 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 28th (Sat) to allow time for the car ride back home.
