Taos Pueblo, N.M.
Families live at Taos Pueblo much as their ancestors have for centuries: with no running water or electricity, to continue and preserve their heritage. Taos Pueblo is believed to be about 1,000 years old. Along with Acoma Pueblo, also in New Mexico, Taos Pueblo is considered to be one of the longest continuously inhabited communities in the nation.
Today, it is a United Nations World Heritage Site that is open for visitors.
A mile north of the Taos Plaza, the iconic, stepped structures of the pueblo are generally open to visitors from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Adult admission is $16.
