WIndy/dusty and not as big as I thought it would be. The shop I really wanted to visit was closed for the lunch hour! Although the prices are better than Santa Fe, it won't take longer than an hour to mosey through the shops on the plaza. I guess on a warm day, it might take longer, but we were... More

Nice place to stop and relax. Wonderful shops and restaurants all around the plaza. Try The Alley Cantina (margaritas!) off the northwest corner.

We parked a block or so off the plaza and walked around to shop, go to lunch (Doc Martin's at Taos Inn), and visit Kit Carson House. There were several galleries with interesting pieces as well as other types of shops. The other element is that if you are going to Taos as a tourist then you will most likely... More

surrounded by many shops and restaurants this is a delightful plaza to spend time in. Shop prices are better than Santa Fe so if you see something get it here

We took a nice stroll through the shops and galleries in the Plaza.. wonderful way to talk with the local shop owners and see the artistic talents in the area. If you are looking for something unique be sure to stop by the pawn shop on the East side of the square!

We walked around the plaza and enjoyed the beautiful lights and decorations. I glad they hadn't taken them down since we were there middle of January. Next time we will plan ahead and go a little earlier to visit the shops.

Since this was our first Taos visit this time of year, the condition of the Taos Plaza and the town in general was a real eye opener! Granted it had snowed two days earlier but the snow was pretty much gone from the streets and sidewalks. The streets surrounding the plaza were coated with 1/2" to 1" of mud or... More

Lot's to see, and do, and touch. Plenty of shops with a large variety of various arts, crafts, and local delicacies to ponder over. Plenty of places to eat, drink, and just browse around. Wear some good walking shoes as there is a lot to see and do via your feet. If you like to spend money this is a... More

Be prepared to walk. And enjoy lots of interesting shops. Parking is tight in the plaza but there is parking at the entrance to the plaza.

We hit the Taos Plaza twice on this trip. I was looking for a Starbucks and the LaFonda Hotel had one next door. Excellent coffee drinks both times! We found a good selection of souvenir t shirts at the T shirt shop. There were a couple of good stores but over all it's not a place that we would want... More
