Nice Place to Hang Out

The center of Old Town, this is a great place to people watch. There are large shading trees when it's hot. In the colder months, the sun shines nicely and feels great.

Loved the square. Lots of unique shops. Beautiful, clean and several historic landmarks. Bent street was fun too.

An old plaza/town square now populated with any and all manner of shops to ply the tourist trade, not unlike the same the world over, except this one is in Taos.

There was a band, called "The Damn Band," they were great! People were in a festive mood. Fireworks, fun and festivities! The Plaza is fun any time. It is the true hub of Taos!

The plaza and shops are nice and pretty, the people were very nice. However The architecture and scene is very pretty. The people were nice and friendly.

New Year's Eve on the plaza features free barbecue (cooked by the mayor), music, fireworks, and a lighted balloon release. It is a very fun experience.
