Arts and Cultural Explorer – Full Day
FULL DAY OF CULTURE
STAY THE NIGHT & EXPLORE MORE
To get the full experience of the region, we recommend staying for a few days. Make The Blake your basecamp for adventure and outings.
1. Morning PUEBLO TRIP
Hugging a small branch of the Rio Grande River, Taos Pueblo is the only living Native American community designated both a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a National Historic Landmark. Roughly 1000 years old, the Pueblo Indian settlement is a powerful reflection of the cultural richness of Taos.
2. LUNCH AT THE BAVARIAN
There is no better way to close out your morning at Taos Ski Valley than with a refreshing lunch at The Bavarian. Make sure to start your meal with a pretzel…always a Bavarian favorite!
3. AFTERNOON EARTHSIP TOUR
Earthships have been described as “the epitome of sustainable design and construction.” These buildings may seem surreal and transcendental but they were consciously built with natural and reclaimed materials and use thermal and solar heating and cooling and solar and wind electricity. The people who call them home are happy to share their creations with visitors. Take a tour, or try sustainable living and stay for a night.
4. TOUR OF THE BLAKE ART COLLECTION
Taos Ski Valley's best kept secret. The Blake has an impressive collection of Norther New Mexico artwork, which we wncourage everyone to come and see.
5. DINNER AT 192
Before and after outdoor adventure, this is your space to connect while savoring shareable dishes and inspired wines. Centered around a communal kiva fireplace, this inviting, intimate dining and social hub radiates international flare—rustic European alpine architecture folded into colorful New Mexican design.
6. EXPLORING DOWNTOWN | LUNCH & MUSEUMS
Foodies have been traveling to Taos for decades in order to enjoy the diverse options that this region provides. After lunch make sure you take some time to explore the historic Taos Plaza where shops and art galleries are abundant and you will almost definitely find a keepsake to go home with.
