Taos

— 5 nights
Many residents have shunned fast-paced city living for Taos's laid-back vibe and blend of Spanish, Native American, and Anglo cultures.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Goose Lake Trail and Kit Carson Park. Visiting Columbine Campground and Frijoles Canyon will get you outdoors. Explore Taos' surroundings by going to Mallette Park Nature Trail (in Red River) and Orilla Verde Recreation Area (in Pilar). There's still lots to do: appreciate the history behind Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, cast your line with Taos Fly Shop, browse the exhibits of Blumenschein Home & Museum, and revel in the low prices at Taos Rockers Mineral & Fossil Outlet.

For ratings, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Taos trip itinerary site.

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to Taos. Expect a daytime high around 76°F in September, and nighttime lows around 44°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sat) so you can drive to Santa Fe.
