There are a lot of ways to get to Taos, NM. You can get there by plane, bus or automobile.

Plane: The Albuquerque International Sunport

Bus: try Greyhound. Of course, the drive through the mountains is always beautiful.

Once you've arrived, you'll want to find the Festival! Not really hard- Kit Carson Park is on Paseo del Pueblo Norte (north), the main road through Taos – just a bit north of the Plaza, on the right at Civic Plaza Drive (traffic signal).

Didn't drive? No problem. Taos has its own bus line - The Chile Line. You can get their schedules and pickup/drop off locations by calling 505-737-2606.

Can't bear to wait for the bus? That's OK, too. Try renting a car at either Enterprise Car Rentals or Cottam-Walker Ford L-M, Inc.

Because of the high elevation of Taos, be sure to allow extra time to rest after you have arrived.  And drink plenty of water while visiting.
