We have made trips down to Colorado many times. It is great that we have family there to visit. It is even better when that family can take us to places that we have never been too. This trip they took us to Taos. It was so much fun. The history was amazing and if you can do a road trip this summer this is one that you will want to check out!

They have a live band every night and it is an old building so the walls are a bit thin! It is great for people that stay here to sample the atmosphere of old Taos yet expect modern amenities. Staying on top of the personal services in warm, relaxed surroundings, Yes they even offer wifi.
It is made up of several adobe houses, which date from the 1800's, Like a warm hug the inn is surrounded by a small plaza, and now the inn's spectacular lobby. is so wonderful and welcoming. A community well was located in the center of the plaza. In its place today, a fountain is surrounded by vertical vigas which rise two-and-a-half stories to a stained glass cupola. You truly have to see it to be able to understand its beauty.
While in Toas we did some fun shopping at kimosabetaos a fun antique store that has so many great old treasures, I bought an old plaque of a saint. Then I took my nephew to twirlhouse toy store. Where I got some unique toys and puzzles, plus they have a large play ground that all the kids can play at while their parents or auntie is having a coffee!

There is the Doc Martins right in the hotel that serves the best french toast I have had in my life. Then there is the adobe bar that is the heart of the hotel and where all the live music is centered around. We also went to the elmeze. Where it was vibrant and fun and full of art. We then went to the Ogelvies. & it was the most amazing mexican food I have ever had the pleasure to eat.
Make sure that you check out the hotels website at The historic Inn at Toas. It was great to see how other people live in different parts of our beautiful country. I look forward to going back and touring all of New Mexico.
