Driving: Most visitors to Taos drive every day or part of their trip, and you will likely need to rent a car or share a rent car with other class mates to get around Taos and to our evening NightWalking class locations in the nearby Taos desert. The local shuttle bus provides regional public transportation. Lyft and Uber and occasionally available but often erratic.
Grocery: Cid’s Food Market is the best place in the area to get high quality, fresh food, organic food, grab-and-go take away, and gourmet groceries. Smith’s is a regional chain grocer and has bargain choices and an attached gas station, pharmacy, and other services. If you are flying into Albuquerque, major grocers such as Trader Joe’s, Costco, Whole Foods, and Walmart are abundant. If you are flying into Santa Fe, Whole Foods, Albertson’s, and regional chains are easy to find.
Hospitals: Holy Cross Medical Center has an Emergency Room and other hospital services and is quite close to our training facility. There’s also NextCare Urgent Care in town.
Pharmacy: Walgreen’s Pharmacy is quite close to our training venue and Smith’s pharmacy, inside the grocery store, is in the area as well. There are no 24-hour pharmacies in Taos.
Restaurants: Taos welcomes visitors for ski season and for summer travel, so highly-rated restaurants are abundant. Our favorites are Medley, the Burger Stand, Guadalajara Grill southside, and Sabroso.
In Taos: Rio Grande Gorge and Taos Pueblo are special. The historic Taos Plaza is newer, and has many shops, restaurants, and live music at the Taos Inn Adobe Bar.
Day or Side Trips: Many Taos visitors enjoy time at the mineral springs of the famous Ojo Caliente or take time to visit Santa Fe’s Historic Square, MeowWolf, and the Georgia O’Keefe Museum.
