I had an afternoon to myself to explore. While taking a break and enjoying the day, I happened upon Frank from Taos Pueblo. He's an artist and sits in the plaza and paints. He was a delightful man and we had a wonderful conversation. The plaza is beautiful!

There are some very interesting shops that sell items that range from clothing to cookware. Visiting during mid June we attended a free concert in town square. Enjoyed ice cream from shop adjacent to square ( name can't remember). Thing I found strange was that the shops especially coffee and deli closed early. Seems like they missed opportunity to cash...

My friend and I did some shopping around this cute plaza. It was right smack in the center of shops and art galleries. Loved how many families and children were in the plaza. Perfect place to kick back and appreciate the scenery.

We always park and walk to the Plaza for food,a drink and walk thru the stores. They all have an feeling from Times Past, something about the place reminds me of the road trip we took as kids. The Land of Enchantment comes alive for me here, The nearby Pueblo and Temple add to the aura. Sometime there is music... More

This small plaza is surrounded by dozens of interesting shops, Art galleries, and restaurants. Every side street as well. Summer to fall nearly every day there's a happening with music and crafts. Beware, they roll up the side walks at 9 o'clock. Eat before 8:00 or eat Taco Smell.

The plaza is one city block in size surrounded in touristy shops. Being mobility impaired, I sat on the plaza on one of the many benches under the shade and people watched while the ladies shopped. They reported to me that the prices were not nearly as high as Santa Fe and made several purchases. If you are visiting Taos... More

If it's rainy or you get tired of outdoor activities or you just love boutique shopping, the plaza is a nice place to go. Most of the items seemed over-priced, and the plaza itself is small, but worth checking out if you want to buy knick knacks over expensive outdoor wear.

This time we had to put on our rain slicker for the brief afternoon shower that hit just at starting time. Left the temp down a few degrees and provided a lot of people watching activities as the many attendees handled the shower in all kinds of ways. The local western band warmed everyone right up with toe tapping oldies... More
