We drive down to Taos a few times/year & love visiting the plaza & surrounding area when there. One of my favorite shops is located about 1/2 block off the SE corner of the plaza...it's called Taos Home.

The plaza is cute with shops all around. The old jail serves as part of history society and has some cool murals. It does not compare to the Santa Fe Plaza.

The stores on the plaza have standard stuff a standard visitor to Taos would want. Dragonfly stands out with bright unique garments and jewelry from Nepal, at good prices. The plaza is pleasant, the people are nice even if you’re “just looking.” No reason not...More

We haven’t been to Taos for 20 years, but when we visited the Plaza this time, we found most of the stores were closed, even though we were there on a Tuesday and at noon. The stores that were open were mostly tourist junk stores....More

Every town in New Mexico apparently does a Fiesta (a town festival) and our visit to Taos in July coincided with theirs. In addition to the lovely little shops and galleries there were mariachi bands, parades and dances.
