The downtown area of Taos is great for walking, with many restaurants, shops, and galleries to visit. Many illustrious artists, including Georgia O'Keeffe, Ansel Adams, and D. H.

Taos Museums are world-class and include the Harwood Museum, Kit Carson Museum, Millicent Rogers Museum, Martinez Hacienda, and the Blumenschein Home.
