Santa Fe's Plaza is a very pretty area that fills a full city block. Explore the area surrounding the plaza on foot and you will be able to take in even more great history.

Had a great time walking and visiting the various shops and attractions. Everyone was friendly and found plenty of items that wanted to take home. The Governor's palace has Native American vendors and they are so informative. This is a must when visiting Santa Fe.
