You probably know well where the nearest chemist is (yes, that one down the street). If a tourist drops in asking where can he buy aspirins, you would let him know in five seconds. Fine… but, what if a space tourist drops in asking where the nearest star cluster is? Huh? You don’t know? Come on, you have been all your life long in this part of the galaxy and you need to check the wikipedia to answer? Yes, it is right there, the Hyades. You just take your spaceship up and then right. You can stop at Aldebaran if you want to have a break (it seems to be part of the Hyades from here, but actually it is half-way).
Then, you have other gems in Taurus, apart from these impressive star clusters. For example, you have the remnants of a supernova that exploded almost one thousand years ago, having been spotted by everyone but Europeans (we were too busy about the schism between the Catholics and the Orthodoxes back then, and the the Englishmen were occupied invading Scotland).
Looks like Taurus has many interesting things to see around.
