Don't miss the square. There is many evenings with entertainment. Shopping is all around and food is a close as your hand. Sit on the square and watch the world go by.

The plaza was best in the early morning or late after the shops have closed. Seems awfully touristy during the day.

We venture to Taos Plaza on a Saturday, although it was packed and parking was difficult it was a great experience. We went from store to store buying gifts in four of them. On Saturdays they have a farmer's market kind of setting where you can buy really local stuff.

Live band every night fro 6-8. Bring a lawn chair and a cooler. Food and drinks for sale, but a little pricy. Bring the dog if it is a people friendly pooch. Also included a dance floor. Lots of shops and cafes available before and during the music.

Much like the larger Santa Fe Plaza this one is surrounded by shops and restaurants and is somewhat more pleasing in that there are few street vendors and a small town vibe unlike Santa Fe! With the Southwest vibe very present it did remind me of some other small town squares that we have visited in other states! Highly recommend... More

The Taos Plaza is a must-stop on any northern New Mexico itinerary. The shops offer a variety of goods ranging from postcards to posh clothing to premiere artwork. We especially like the Kemosabe shop which is filled with beautiful and rare Native American textiles and artifacts. We also enjoy eating on the upstairs deck at the Gorge where the food... More

Taos Plaza is a quaint little plaza with all sorts if interesting history, unique shops and beautiful little square to sit and relax in. If your looking for something unusual for a gift in the form of southwest flair, this is the place. If you can't find it here, you wont be able to find it at all

Want to spend lots of money on average touristy stuff? Then this is the place for you. Not bad, just crowded and average stuff for tourists. Definitely not off the beaten path.

It was a pretty, historical, and at times tranquil, at time lively plaza. Many of the shops are touristy or over priced or both, but it is still worth a bit of exploring. My wife and I enjoyed the other streets nearby more which had better shops, galleries, cafes, and restaurants.

This plaza is smaller than the Santa Fe Plaza. The plaza is filled with art galleries and places to eat. The restrooms are easy to find in the courtyard. The flowers are beautiful there in July.
