U.S. News and World Report ranked Taos as the third best Christmas destination in the world, ranking above some major cities like London, Zurich, and Amsterdam. The report highlighted Taos' historic downtown and annual events.

Only Prague in the Czech Republic and Vienna, Austria ranked higher.

"For a twist on the traditional Christmas, consider spending the holidays in this small town 70 miles north of Santa Fe, New Mexico," U.S. News and World Report said of Taos. "Snow-covered adobe buildings dot the historic downtown and handmade gifts are available at the Taos Folk pop-up store. The roster of unique events includes bonfires on Bent Street, which features traditional Aztec dancers."
