If you want to get you magnets, spoons, t-shirts, and cups, go to the plaza. The prices are reasonable and the people are friendly. The shops on Bent Street and the surrounding area were more charming.

Gives you a hint of Old Taos. Nicer than plaza in Albuqurque, but probably not worth a special trip. We happened to be here on a fiesta day so there was a good representation of the local native Americans, Hispanic and cowboy cultures in town. Good street parking only a few blocks away.

Well taken care of, clean and well kept. However, to me if you have seen one Native American painting you have seen them all (I live in Oklahoma). There isn't anything for children to do except for the cool toy store called "Twirl". Worth checking out surrounding streets.

This is a fine little area if your interest is shopping. But it does wear thin after a while, so seek out some history tucked here and there and pause to appreciate artists at work.

It's difficult and expensive to park if you are only there for a couple of hours. We aren't really the shopping types so its fair to say we probably didn't appreciate the Plaza.

The plaza is ringed by an excellent selection of shopping, but for us the high point was the Saturday Farmers' Market! Even though we were traveling and could not take advantage of the produce, there were great gift items available. The vibe was just something special. Fun to just walk around and take it all in.

We liked the variety of shops--kitchen, rocks/minerals, chocolate, cashmere, pottery, clothing, etc. Many had plenty of unique and affordable items and everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. Be sure to wander off the main plaza because there are wonderful shops on the nearby side streets.

This is a quaint area where you can walk and look at galleries. It is a great place to visit with shopkeepers, get a look at a variety of artists and jewelry, and sit and just sip a drink.

The reviews made the plaza sound like something out of a movie, but it was not that impressive. The shops were okay.

I hate to say it, but the heart of the plaza is pretty touristy as are the shops. You must see it, but Bent Street around the corner that hooks up with the Plaza is better!
