Santa Fe to Taos

by SFHulaGIrl

Are there buses and/or trains from Santa Fe to Taos? If so, what is the approximate length of time and fare for them? Would Taos be an easy daytrip from Santa Fe without a car?

There are no trains. I don't know about buses, but there would be few if any. It's 67 miles from SFe to Taos.
It's not an easy daytrip w/o a car..you'll need one.

Tina, Pro is right about no train and a bus would only get you to downtown Taos. Many of the things to see around Taos are a few miles away. My first thought was to get a tour. I googled Santa Fe and Taos tours. http://www.outbacktours.com/index.php looks good. They certainly cover the right places. If you do end up renting a car instead, be sure to stop in Dixon and do some wine tasting there.

To see if there are any tours, go to the La Fonda hotel lobby in Santa Fe. There is a lot of literature there and check with the hotel info desk.

I would stay away from taking a bus for a day trip. If you do want to do it, Faust's is the company that has the shuttle and you can google their phone number.

Instead I would just rent a car in santa fe for the day. You can get one for about $30. Part of the taos experience is being able to take the low road home which is not as direct but stunning and goes through some little towns where you might like to stop and have a look around. Also, if you get to taos (town) and want to go to the ski area you will be stuck without a car (or at least will have to find another bus). Finally, the rio grand gorge bridge is really cool and I doubt any buses go out there. Same goes for the eco-houses or whatever they are called.

A New Mexico Christmas

by kymbanm

The winter holidays in Santa Fe represent so much of the culture of the region. Yes, there are traditional Christmas lights with lots of colors, but there are other lights more unique to the region. If you know of luminarias, you may think of them as those lunch bags that glow .... technically you would be correct as that is what the name has come to mean. In Santa Fe, those same little lights are called farolitos. Santa Fe is unique in that they consider the bonfires luminarias (which is historically correct)... During the holiday season you can see them all!

On Christmas eve in particular ...... Santa Fe closes Canyon Road to vehicles, the art galleries and shops stay open late, and the folks of the city different and surrounding areas come out to play! You'll find so called normal folks, folks in costumes, pets in costumes, carolers, hot chocolate stands, and lights galore! It's simply magical ......

Hike to Bandelier Ruins

by painterdave

Drive north and then west from Santa Fe in the direction of Los Alamos. Then watch for signs to Bandelier National Monument.
These well preserved ruins are most interesting. You hike from the visitor's center and go up along the cliff side. The Indians have carved rooms into the cliff. Here you can see petroglyphs.
The view from above is terrific and you can get an idea of what it was like back then.
Some of the houses have been rebuilt to show you what they looked like.
Bandelier is one of our favorite places to visit. Be sure and bring a water bottle in the summer.
There is a snack bar and lots of souvenirs to check out.
The fee for entrance is the standard one for US monuments.

If you like the outdoors Tent...

by Rissa

If you like the outdoors Tent Rocks is an excellent place to visit, even with children. Tent Rocks and exactly what they are (Rocks that look like Tents) it is about 20 miles North of Santa Fe off of I-25. You can take the strenuous path at Tent Rocks or the simple quiet scenic route. Either way I am sure you will find Tent Rock interesting and unique.
