TUCSON — Nicknamed "Old Pueblo," Tucson is a city with many faces. It's a college town. It's an artist town. It's even still a Wild West town. Every February, southern Arizona's biggest city, located 115 miles (185 kilometers) below Phoenix, keeps schools open on President's Day but closes them later in the week for the annual Tucson Rodeo Parade.

Here are five free things to do and see on your next trip to Taos.

Finding a faux snow- and candy cane-filled homage to Santa Claus is easy; just look at your local mall for the line snaking around the giant Christmas tree. Honing in on an experience that makes as much of the Christmas story — the story of the birth of Jesus — is another matter.
