The plaza is a very nice area to relax or to shop. Many vendors all around outside, under the overhang at the Palace of the Governors & some nice but expensive stores around the square.

The Plaza was interesting. Some of the stores were filled with touristy stuff while others were unique to the area. I enjoyed some of the galleries but in a few I felt like we were bothering them by being in there. We ate at several restaurants; none were outstanding but mostly enjoyable. The Plaza park area was relaxing and a... More

Take a break from shopping and relax on the plaza. It includes many lovely trees so it's a good place to cool off. The Native American art and jewelry is worth a look too.

Often went to The Pkaza. Much to see, browse, purchase, eat, people watch. Saw Cathedral,Church while there as well. You could go to The Plaza numerous times and still not see every shop, church, museum, gallery, cafe, exhibit, restaurants

Put on your walking shoes, as this place is filled with stores of jewelry, art, souvenirs, food etc. There is a grass park in the middle where many festivals are held. And even if you are not shopping, this is great place to relax, people watch and grab a bite to eat.

Mathew was our server and was very helpful in regards to a food allergy. He was also very friendly. The menu is large, something for everyone. We got the fish tacos (amazing) and the gyro (the best per my husband) . They do not have a full bar, but it didn't really matter. The cake selection is mind boggling. All... More

The Plaza has to be one of the attractions you visit while in Santa Fe. It's a great people watching spot, plenty of benches throughout to sit and relax. We were in Santa Fe over two week-ends and both had events at the Plaza. This makes the traffic REALLY hectic, especially on the small streets of Santa Fe. Also, artists... More
