Many residents have shunned fast-paced city living for Taos's laid-back vibe and blend of Spanish, Native American, and Anglo cultures.
Family-friendly places like Horseback Riding Tours and River Rafting & Tubing will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Bandelier National Monument (in Los Alamos), Ghost Ranch (in Abiquiu) and La Chiripada Winery (in Dixon). And it doesn't end there: take in the views from Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, make a trip to Taos Drums, get a taste of the local shopping with 203 Fine Art, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at San Francisco de Assisi Mission Church.
