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

There is a good variety of stores and restaurants, for various taste and shopping desires. The center of the plaza is so homey with failies enjoying a leisure walk or child's play. We attended the farmer's market and enjoyed the fresh vegetables and visited with the nice vendors. Even the bicycle cop was friendly and informative as to where to... More

Taos is a beautiful city at Christmas especially with the lights at night. This being the central part of the historic city it was nice, however certainly overrun with crystals and other natural healing shops which was frankly a distraction for us.

A fun place to shop! Great food at the Bent Street Deli and Lambert's. Drop in at the Taos Inn for coffee or cocktails and enjoy the historic building.

Lots of little shops - a few upscale, some pretty touristy. But, a quaint little plaza nonetheless! I was able to get some squished pennies in two of the stores there.
