Taos was recently designated one of the 20 Best Small Towns in America by the Smithsonian Institute. Forbes magazine's April 5, 2012 issue included an article entitled Taos, NM: One of America's Prettiest Towns, and Smart Travel named Taos the Most Romantic Small Town in their February 2012 issue.

Located in Northern New Mexico's Sangre de Cristo Range of the Southern Rocky Mountains, Taos sits on a large mesa surrounded by over 1,5 million acres of the Carson National Forest. The topography of Taos creates perfect thermals for a romantic early morning hot air balloon ride. Nearby, America's first designated Wild and Scenic River, the Rio Grande, offers Class IV+ rapids for the whitewater rafting trip of a lifetime. The Chama River, also designated Wild and Scenic, offers a more leisurely trip, winding its way through 1,000' multi-colored sandstone cliffs. Along the way are wonderful opportunities to view wildlife and see petroglyphs. And a trip to America's oldest continually inhabited dwelling (1,100 years), the Taos Pueblo, is a must.

Taos is located on the Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway, an 85 mile ride perfect for road biking, motorcycling and scenic car trips. Stop at the Taos Gorge Bridge for a spectacular view of this geological rift or stop by the old mining town of Red River for a Cowboy Evening.

The hundreds of trails in the Carson National Forest are perfect for mountain biking and hiking. You can go rock climbing, or take a leisurely walk through an alpine meadow carpeted with wildflowers. Look for Rocky Mountain Bluebirds, eagles and hawks, and other wildlife. You can see bighorn sheep, mountain goats, antelope, deer and elk if you're lucky, and snowshoe rabbits. Make sure to bring your camera, you'll want to remember your vacation in Taos!

And Northern New Mexico is a haven for hummingbirds! Relax on your Casas de Melissa vacation rental patio and watch these little wonders enjoying all the stunning flowers in Melissa's legendary gardens. Melissa was recently honored with a special Taos Beautiful Award for her individual, tireless efforts to beautify the Taos Plaza and historical district.
