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.
Let the collections at Georgia O'Keeffe Museum and Museum of Indian Arts & Culture capture your imagination. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Plaza and Bandelier National Monument. The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Loretto Chapel, take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, examine the collection at Museum of International Folk Art, and look for gifts at Sun Country Traders.

Many residents have shunned fast-paced city living for Taos's laid-back vibe and blend of Spanish, Native American, and Anglo cultures.
You've now added Wild Earth Llama Adventures to your itinerary. On the 13th (Sun), don't miss a visit to Taos County Courthouse Murals and then take in the spiritual surroundings of San Francisco de Assisi Mission Church.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Taos vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

You can drive from Santa Fe to Taos in 2 hours. Another option is to take a bus. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Santa Fe in October since evenings lows in Taos dip to 0°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Mon) so you can drive back home.
