Mostly all gift shops targeting the tourist selling basically the same type of souvenirs but there is history to be found and it's a nice area to putter around for a lazy afternoon. The Plaza is a nice central area to relax in. While I was there, I noticed they had a tour group with the guide detailing the history. We parked just north where Rio Grande Blvd and Romero meet for a leisurely walk - even tho' it was drizzly. It all made for a decent afternoon.
