It is a part of Laredo and with it's old plaza cobble stone streets. Shops and touristy yet simple and inviting. Good eats and local shops. Fun to visit since attractions are limited.

As I was visiting the church we took a look around town, it was gorgeous....The only issue was parking. We had to park 2 blocks away because the public parking was going to close in an hour and they wouldn't allow us to park there. That didn't make any sense to me but whatever I guess..This is another attraction if... More

We were in town during one of the events in the month-long George Washington Birthday Celebration - the Jamboozie - held in the general area of the plaza. There is interesting shopping in that area - extremely cheap stuff, but kind of fun to look at. Some of the characters around the plaza are a little bit dodgy looking, but... More
