TAOS, N.M. — To winter sports enthusiasts, Taos is best known for its challenging ski slopes. But this northern New Mexico town has plenty more to offer visitors year-round, on and off the slopes. A hipper little sister of sorts to Santa Fe, Taos is known for its diverse outdoor offerings as well as its funky town square packed full of history, art galleries and Hispanic and Native American culture. Whereas Santa Fe is known for its wealth, Taos is lower-key and tends to attracts a younger, more starving-artist-type crowd. It's a town where new-age nomadic hippies, (referred to locally as "sage monkeys") peacefully coexist with artists, natives, daredevil skiers and even wealthy Texan tourists. Here are five free things to do and see on your next trip to Taos.

The community is one of a number of attractions in the Taos area that won’t cost visitors a dime. (AP Photo/Erica Asmus-Otero)

File - In this Jan. 14, 2013 file photo, a public works employee dumps a truckload of discarded Christmas trees on the beach as part of a project to rebuild dunes damaged by Superstorm Sandy, in Bradley Beach, N.J.
