We love spending time on the Plaza. We go to Santa Fe every August and after checking in at the hotel the Plaza is our next stop. There are plenty of places to grab a quick bite or to sit and eat a casual meal. Love to sit and watch the people. When the Bandstand is having free music the... More

We visited on a Saturday when there was a festival. There were tents lining the street with many unique gifts, and foods. The streets were shut to traffic. There was cultural singing and dancing on stage. Weekend parking was free near the visitors center.

First thing, have a plan. Over 1000 Native American artists and 100,000 visitors make for a crowd. Get to public parking before it opens at 7 am on Saturday and 8 am on Sunday. Bring a water bottle and pace yourself. The 7000 foot altitude of Santa Fe can catch up to you quickly. All vendors are authentic Native American... More

Its right in front of St Francis Church and came here for the native American art show and they had a lot of vendors. The plaza is surrounded by restaurants and what seems to be a mall. I have been to a handful of the restaurants

We come to Sante Fe at least once a month, and the Plaza is an absolute must stop. So much to do and see here, especially in the summer time, with street musicians on every corner. We generally like to sit on a bench, and just enjoy the atmosphere.

The nightly summer bandstand creates a happy place. People of all ages dancingng the square, locals bring chairs and provisions. We sat just outside the fun and enjoyed the atmosphere.

The Plaza at night was wonderful. We stopped after dinner and listened to the band play beautiful melodies under a canopy of twinkling lights, with surrounding lit trees.

We always plan a trip to Santa Fe when we have visitors to our home in Angel Fire. We want them to experience the ambiance and shops at the Plaza. We especially want them to see the individual Native American artists that show their wares at Governor's Palace. We never tire of the experience ourselves. There are a couple of... More

This is the hub of Santa Fe and has so many cool places, restaurants, shops, history and more. Window shop and pop into as many places as possible as there's always something new to explore. Many nice hotels too and parks w/great vistas of the area are only a short walk up the hill. Remember to see Canyon Rd. Great... More
