The Best Christmas Town in Every State
Throughout the state, New Mexican towns follow the hundreds-of-years-old Spanish tradition of luminarias (also called farolitos), paper bags with candles inside that symbolically light the way through the streets. But nowhere is the practice more intriguing than the small town of Taos in the northern high desert.
Taos is an artsy, quirky, historic town in northern New Mexico’s high desert, snuggled into the shadow of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. It is famous for its unique ancient adobe buildings, such as the Taos Pueblo, which Native Americans inhabited for centuries.
