Discover Kit Carson Road
For art lovers and collectors head to Kit Carson Road.
East off the Plaza you will find Kit Carson Road lined with historical adobe buildings housing galleries and unique stores. The merchants from Kit Carson Road are ready to welcome you and often host street events including multi gallery openings and exhibitions or join the Saturday Art Walks throughout Taos to visit the galleries and studios.
This area of Taos is steeped in history and story. The road is named after Kit Carson, arguably the most famous frontiersman in America, who led the way to the Pacific Coast. Plan a visit to the fascinating home of Kit Carson and step back for a moment in Taos history.
Discover the Couse-Sharp Historic site which has the home and studio of E.I. Couse, and the two studios of Joseph Henry Sharp, both founding members of the Taos Society of Artists.
To satisfy your hunger or thirst or celebrate your special purchase head to the El Monte Sagrado Living Resort and Spa for a bite to eat or a cocktail amidst spectacular surroundings.
