Taos

Taos ©
Many residents have shunned fast-paced city living for Taos's laid-back vibe and blend of Spanish, Native American, and Anglo cultures.
On the 12th (Thu), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at San Francisco de Assisi Mission Church.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Taos trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Denver to Taos is an approximately 5.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and car. Traveling from Denver in September, expect little chillier with lows of 44°F in Taos. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive to Santa Fe.

Santa Fe

Santa Fe ©
Santa Fe continuously ranks among the world's top holiday destinations, attracting visitors with its unusual combination of scenic beauty, rich history, cultural diversity, and high concentration of performing arts venues, fine restaurants, and interesting attractions.
Get some cultural insight at San Miguel Chapel and Bradbury Science Museum. Let the collections at Palace of the Governors and Museum of Indian Arts & Culture capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Santa Fe side-trips: El Santuario de Chimayo (in Chimayo) and Pecos National Historical Park (in Pecos). There's still lots to do: browse the exhibits of El Rancho de las Golondrinas, visit Canyon Road, take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, and stop by Wind River Trading Company.

To see traveler tips, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Santa Fe road trip website.
