HOME TO A RICH ART AND MUSIC SCENE, flavorful dining options, and Pueblo culture that dates back more than 1,000 years, it’s no wonder Carmen Medrano, owner of Lotería Paletería, calls Taos a “dreamer’s town.”
Reconnect with the region: Former home and studios of Taos Society of Artists members E.I. Couse and J.H. Sharp, the 2-plus-acre Couse-Sharp Historic Site blends art, culture, history, architecture, and natural beauty in the heart of the historic district. An exhibition by artist Mark Maggiori will be the first in the new Lunder Research Center.
Reconnect with the arts: The Taos Jazz Bebop Society rocks with electric performances and educational outreach programs. Don’t miss the Frank Morgan Taos Jazz Festival November 10–14.
Reconnect with your sense of self: Whether you’re looking to explore your spirit or journey into something new, Native Roots Healing’s herbal medicine classes and healing work sessions can help you reclaim your soul.
Reconnect with others: Tucked between desert cliffs and a cottonwood-lined bosque, the newly reborn Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs offers a healing respite with mineral springs, luxurious suites, spa services, and yoga classes.
Reconnect with local roots: Made by hand with fresh, local ingredients and available in flavors like lemon lavender, Carmen Medrano’s paletas are a love letter to Taos and its visitors. “I wanted to create that feeling of community,” she says.
