The Taos Plaza is a vibrant historic district with an abundance of traditional Southwest retail outlets, small shops and restaurants. Enjoyed the shopping and made several small purchases. the relaxed atmosphere makes it a fun stop.

This plaza is beautiful and historic. The shops in the plaza tend to be touristy and uninteresting. Side streets are a bit more interesting. Don't plan more than an hour or two here.

I needed a plain, long-sleeve t-shirt for the unexpectedly cool weather, but couldn’t find one at the Plaza. Ironically, I bought one at the Walmart, just south of downtown Taos.

If you like to shop this is a good place. Variety of shops some expensive and some average. On vacation found nice t-shirts for a reasonable price.
