As you wander around the city streets, you'll be rubbing shoulders with around 6,000 residents.
If you head 55 miles south of Taos, you'll hit Santa Fe, the state capital. Travel 15 miles southwest and you'll come upon Pilar.
Whether you're young in age or simply young at heart, Twirl Toystore and Playspace will be right up your alley!
The Taos Mountain Casino is the place to go for high-stakes tables and a buzzing atmosphere. Put down a few bets, have a beer and soak up the sights and sounds.
Unfurl your blanket and watch the clouds roll by at a green oasis like Eagle Nest Lake State Park and Kit Carson Park. Also consider spending a bit of time roaming the grounds of Williams Lake and Wild Rivers Recreation Area.
Why not meander around Horseshoe Lake or Lost Lake? Or, you might like to just park yourself by the water's edge and keep an eye out for some colourful waterbirds.
Slip on your comfiest walking shoes and gear up to go on an adventure. There are a range of nature reserves in the surrounding area that are just waiting to be explored. The fresh, crisp air and natural surroundings at Wheeler Peak and Black Rock Hot Springs are as energising as they come. For those who haven't yet fully recharged, Wheeler Peak Wilderness Area and Mallette Park Nature Trail are a couple more worth experiencing.
Seeking compelling museum displays? Head straight for the Taos Art Museum and the Bent Gallery and Museum. Remember to ask the friendly staff about guided tours. The Navajo Gallery and the Millicent Rogers Museum are also leading options for museum nerds.
In a destination that's chock-full of marvellous art collections, the Harwood Museum of Art and the Henningsen Fine Arts somehow manage to shine brighter than the rest. If you've still got an itch to scratch, continue on to the Rottenstone Pottery and the Harwood Foundation Museum.
Don't just read about history, step right back into it at the Taos Historic Museums! Here you'll experience an exciting look into the people and events that have helped shape the area over the years.
To truly get a sense of the background of Taos, take a day to visit the Taos Pueblo and D.H. Lawrence Ranch. If you have the time, San Francisco de Asis Mission Church and Kit Carson Home and Museum are a couple more must-visits.
Make sure you clear some time in your schedule to wander around John Dunn Bridge. This timeless structure has spanned the waters for what feels like an eternity, adding a little old world atmosphere to Taos.
Whether you practise a faith or not, San Francisco de Asis Church and San Francisco de Asís Church are perfect places to find some stillness.
Taos Plaza is a lovely spot to do some people-watching and really acquaint yourself with the city. If you're feeling sociable, strike up some casual banter with one of the locals. You never know, they might just give you some wisdom on the city's best attractions.
Memorials play an essential role in reminding a city of its history. Of the symbolic structures in Taos, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and Rio Grande Gorge Bridge are among the most remarkable.
If you have a love of education, why not stop by the SMU-in-Taos, one of the area's leading educational institutions? Remember to find out about group tours before you head there.
After the perfect souvenir? Browse the racks at Kakawa Chocolate House.
The Taos Plaza Theater and Arts Center and KTAOS Solar Center are some popular venues. Why not ask the locals what's going on and make a night of it?
It's much better to look over your life and say, "Can you believe I did that?," rather than, "I really wish I had done that." So, while you're here you shouldn't miss the chance to explore some of the less frequented attractions, such as the Angel Fire Country Club and the Taos Center for the Arts. The Taos Country Club and Old Town are some other options.
