Visitor's vacation Guide to Taos, New Mexico. Nestled in the Southern Rocky Mountains, close to the Rio Grande River Gorge, you will find the historic town of Taos, New Mexico. A melting pot of three cultures, the Indian, Spanish and Anglo, Taos is rich in the history of the Old West, is the location of the ancient Taos Pueblo, and home to the early 20th century American Impressionist movement that was the Taos Artist Colony. Today, Taos is widely known for its continuing art tradition, vast recreational activities (such as skiing, hiking, fly fishing, white water rafting and hot air ballooning), and as the World Capital of Solar Energy (with its many solar, passive solar and earthship homes). On Taos Unlimited, you can explore what the Taos, New Mexico area has to offer through listings of the many providers of food, lodging, merchants, services, real estate, art, entertainment, recreation, and ski area activities. And the Taos counterculture enjoys an open-mindedness which embraces new age spiritual ideas and concepts, healthy, sustainable living, and alternative healing practices. Taos Unlimited also provides practical information on Taos and the surrounding area, its history, scenic beauty, multicultures, the colorful Wild West, and indigenous plants and wildlife. Taos’ unique local color is practically synonymous with the mythology and common uses of turquoise (for jewelry and ritual), traditional mud adobe architecture, and the omnipresent chili, red or green. Spend a day shopping Taos Plaza and the surrounding art galleries and museums; enjoy a great meal at one of the many fine restaurants in the downtown area; and relax in comfort at your favorite historic hotel, charming bed and breakfast, authentic Southwestern inn, or Northern New Mexico luxury resort.
