45. Visit Taos Pueblo, New Mexico

Visit Taos Pueblo, New Mexico

If you’ve been to the Independence National State Park, then another of the things to do in the US before you die is visit the Taos Pueblo.

This UNESCO World Heritage Site will imbue you with the spirit of the nation before the arrival of “the white man.” Taos has been a settlement for over 600 years and the original inhabitants of this area – the Tiwa speaking people – who live on a reservation adjacent to the Pueblo still use it for ceremonial rites.
