“Great place to shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

Some stores had staff who gave us excellent service while there were a few stores which would not not even bother to stop their conversations with friends when prices were asked about. There is an incredible range of prices-- sometimes for the same item so do not impulse buy. Instead, compare and return to one with best value. An incense burner can go from 7.50 up to 15.00 for the same one. I enjoyed taking a rest on a bench in the square. I did not get to people watch because it was cold and rainy that day!

“Quaint and Historic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

Smaller than the Plaza in Santa Fe, it is nevertheless just as unique and historic. Filled with wonderful art galleries, great restaurants and other shops, Taos Plaza is worth the time to stop, park your car, and just walk around and enjoy the place for a couple of hours. And then right off Taos Plaza is Kit Carson Road, an avenue filled with even more fantastic art galleries.

“Typical Southwest old town square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

This town square has been invaded by botique after botique. If you are a shopper this place is for you. Parking is difficult to find and you will need a ton of quarters if you are lucky enough to find a parking space as old town is chock full of parking meters.

“Great spot for people watching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

A park surrounded by shops, with big trees for shade. A nice spot to rest while sightseeing. Sometimes, there are musicians performing. We spent some time on a warm, spring evening with an ice cream, listing to Celtic harp music.
