If you love to shop, you will love the Plaza. There are numerous jewelry and clothing shops, ranging in price and quality. Great place to pick up some gifts.

Make sure you stop at the farmers market to visit the booth called Bison Star Naturals! Best soap I have used that is natural and nicely scented compared to store bought soap. You can also order after your visit by visiting their website at bisonstarnaturals.com. I have ordered online when I can't get to Taos and shipment is very quick.... More

Don't miss the old town plaze of Taos. There is metered parking along the street but it is usually hard to find a spot. Public restrooms are located just off the plaza. There are not signs so be sure to ask.

The square has an old world charm and peaceful atmosphere despite the crowds of people milling around it to visit the various museums and shops there. Take time to sit at the gazebo and enjoy the ambiance.

Charming Plaza with landscaping and benches. Perfect for enjoying the sunset over Taos EXCEPT it is being invaded by skateboarders every day and sunset. A big negative.

Taos Plaza is much like the Santa Fe Plaza. Nothing unique. Shops with tourist trinkets. Sorry for the poor review. I was hoping to be impressed with the history of the place but just wasn't.

Not much to see except cheap trinkets, t shirts and a few overpriced art pieces. The restaurants on the plaza are limited and average at best.

Great place to begin your journey in historic Taos. Lot's of choices for shops including Native American jewelry and other hand made items. Plenty of restaurants around as well. Don't we to quick to buy until you shop around particularly with jewelry. Some shops overpriced but there are some that are reasonable for what you are getting in handmade pieces.

My fiancé & I had been walking & wanted to take a rest. We were privileged to observe a wedding in the gazebo of a couple about our age. Although the Plaza may not be as active as Santa Fe, it still provides entertainment for those who are patient people watchers. There are plays & musical groups in other areas... More
