The Taos Plaza is a great destination for families, couples or solo. There are so many wonderful shops to look at. The merchants are helpful and friendly. There are galleries and diversified shops. The prices are very reasonable and some great souvenirs can be found...More

Sometimes by accident. Sometimes offers farmers market, which can be better than most downtown restaurants (does anyone visit Taos for downtown restaurants?)

The main draw for me was the architecture. The galleries and boutiques weren’t interesting to me at all. I walked around in circles a lot and kept finding myself at the same place.

Great place to let those in your group that want to shop do that while you people watch or have a meaningful conversation with a stranger in the gazebo. Something for everyone.

We enjoyed the shopping, as well as the play area for kids, Twirl. It has convenient parking (meters) and a lot of different shops withing easy walking distance.

With the exception of a couple of higher quality establishments, the Plaza is mostly cheap touristy shops with goods of questionable quality and origin. Go one street over to Bent Street for a higher caliber of goods.

We were lucky to be there when the local farmers market was there. Nice and interesting things to buy, fro fresh wild mushrooms to a great variety of vegetables and fruits and some nice food.

Seems that some of the older businesses are folding up. It needs some restaurants or something to attract more business. It was a busy Sunday afternoon in Taos but the plaza was a little dead compared to other areas around it.
