Friendly but has standard piles of prints which you can easily find in your hotel's front desk too.

Lots of good information and helpful staff! Brochures and maps, even a few souvineers. Open every day of the week with great hours. Wish I would have stopped here the first day of the trip rather than the last!

Well stocked with desert mercandise but could be located better. Hard to find for non-residents ... too hidden on a side street. It deserves an El Paseo address.

Lots of maps/guides for the area and the staff are very helpful.
Signage to the location is a bit hard to find although they do point you in to the El Paseo area.
