Taos is beloved and has a rich history that involves its plaza. you drive one way around the small plaza. There are shops and galleries.

We enjoyed walking through this plaza to browse the local shops. There were a couple locations to eat, to stop and have drinks and to browse. I would suggest visiting the museum and jail located in the plaza as well.

While the Taos Plaza is a miniature version of her cousins, Santa Fe and Albuquerque, it is still a pleasant way to spend the day. Especially the art work that can be found on the Plaza.

This plaza reminded me a lot of the plaza in Santa Fe. There were many shops selling many different items. We spent about 2 hours there. We also eat at one of the many restaurants. There are also many public restrooms that make the experience more enjoyable. There also are many parking lots that change around $7.00 to park all... More

In Mexico, plazas are a place to meet with people, dance to music in the evening, or just walk through. Boy oh boy, not this plaza for sure, only cheapy trinket shops with made in China schlock. Don't bother.

Taos plaza is the real thing. Low key, no pushy sales but great time wandering between the shops and stop for cup of coffee. Quintessential northern new Mexico--can't get enough of this place.

Historical right downtown in Taos Village. Surrounded with parking and shops. Nice gazebo and trees. Have been here year round and always a nice place to kick aback and get centered.

So much of everything. Art galleries, amazing food, sweeping views, easy access to all sorts of outdoor and indoor activities. Recommend the farmers market, and going for the live music.

best when there are weekend events. Most of the shops now are crapy souvenirs. If you are looking for art go else where

Historic town center that obviously now caters to tourists. We enjoyed checking the little shops and took a full "square" before we sat down on the 2nd floor open deck of a restaurant to sip frozen margaritas and people watch for hours.
