Once the snow melts and the winds of spring die down, and the air starts to warm up, a new energy takes over Taos. While winter is about hitting the slopes and otherwise laying low, summer in Northern New Mexico is an active and exciting time.

“Discover Taos, Visitor & Newcomer Guide” for summer and fall 2015 should be your guide to capturing that excitement. We have stories that will help you explore, discover and experience Taos in ways you may not have expected before.
We have stories dedicated to our area’s significant arts and culture, whether that means the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Taos Society of Artists, the new generation of Taos artists or local music and film events. These are experiences you won’t want to miss. Check out page 36 for more information.
And whether you are from here, or just visiting, you’re gonna need to eat something. And while you’re eating something, you might as well have a drink, right? It’s all part of the experience. We’ve got all your foodie desires covered in our food and beverage section, beginning on page 76.
Of course we can also help you find a place to stay (page 98) but if you’re an adventurous type (and we’re guessing you are, else you wouldn’t be here), then you’ll want to skip right ahead to page 106 to explore all the options and choose your own Taos adventure. From sight-seeing to rock climbing, it’s all here.
And lastly, the Enchanted Circle wouldn’t be the place it is without the communities that dot this rugged and beautiful landscape. From sacred Taos Pueblo to the charming Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort, you’ll want to discover the people and places that make these communities special.
This year’s Guide comes with an added bonus: The new Discover Taos website, an online repository of wonderful images, great information and extra summer content. Check it out at DiscoverTaos.com. Readers are also encouraged to check out our Facebook and Twitter accounts, as well as our Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube feeds.
Catch the excitement of a Taos summer and don’t forget to bring along your official Discover Taos guide.
