Lots of good restaurants & fun shops are located in the Plaza. Several Classy Boutiques, delis & cafes, Chocolate & Ice Cream Stores, Indian Crafts & almost everything you'd want. Also, the Historic Taos Trolley Tour Bus operates from here for visitors.

We walked here several times from our lodging and there was always interesting activity for all ages. The farmers' market on Saturday was especially interesting. All kinds of fruits and vegetables, interesting music, a real community event.
