Similar to the "more famous" Plaza down in Santa Fe, Taos Plaza offers up a solid shopping experience, ranging from trinkets to authentic locally made goods, to a surprisingly strong art presence (we picked up a very nice local piece for a VERY reasonable price), and of course there are the more "chain-like" stores. Parking can be limited during peak... More

Great place to look around. We enjoyed seeing T. H. Laurence s paintings in the hotel on the Plaza. Kind of a peep show where you are escorted to a back room, seated in front of 11 paintings and listen to a tape about the artist. Not porn grade any more but you feel naughty paying $3 each for a...

Be sure not to miss a great little Quilt shop called Taos Adobe Quilting just off the north west corner of the Plaza. A great fabric selection, lots of southwest designs and friendly people.

We took our time going up and enjoyed every min of the drive from albuquerque. The Plaza was fun to checkout with everything under the sun store wise. We enjoyed the old cort house... More

If you read the brochures you'd think this Plaza had some nice shopping and fun restaurants. In my opinion, the Plaza is sort of unkept and dirty, in need of renovation. The shop fronts are in need of sprucing up. Let me put it this way: there's opportunity to make the place look much more inviting. We did find a... More

Lots of art and jewelry stores. Great NM Cowboy shop. Nick Nack shops, T shirts, Consignment shops, and coffee shops. Worth walking around

Tourist trap. Went there a few times to by trinkets. Expensive stuff and some neat stuff but not worth the trip.

For such an iconic place as Taos, what with its art, history and culture, their plaza is a disappointment. The shops are nothing special. The overall impression is that they sell tourist ticky tacky and not fine goods. Contrasted with the Santa Fe Plaza, Taos comes off third rate.

Nicely decorated, historic, though commercialized. Lots of shops selling art and trinkets. Hosted a New Year's Eve celebration. It was pleasant to spend a few hours ambling around.

An interesting blend of modern and old. Much like Taos itself. Try to find parking outside of the immediate vicinity and stroll around the plaza
