Taos Taos is known as a world famous arts town, sitting in a masterpiece New Mexico setting. It's wedged between the towering peaks of the Rocky Mountains and the plunging chasm of the Rio Grande Gorge. Located about 70 miles north of Santa Fe, this is a town of 6,000 residents. There are plenty of mainstream attractions -- Taos boasts some of the best restaurants in the state, a hot and funky arts scene, and incredible outdoors action, including world-class skiing.
The history of Taos may be much different if the railroad had not bypassed the area in favor of Santa Fe in the late 1800's. Soon after many artists began to migrate to the area to paint the dramatic scenery afforded by the unparalleled terrain. As time went on more and more artists of all disciplines began to move to the area forming a culture that remains today. It is estimated that 20-25% of all residents in the area are artists (painters, sculptures, writers, or musicians).
The city of Taos is merely the focal point of rugged 2,200-square-mile Taos County. Two features dominate this sparsely populated region: the high desert mesa, split in two by the 650-foot-deep gorge of the Rio Grande and the Sangre de Cristo range, which tops out at 13,161-foot Wheeler Peak, the highest point in New Mexico. From the forested uplands to the sage-carpeted mesa, the county is home to a large variety of wildlife.
