Went here in a vacation with my mom. The shops are super expensive, and the people selling stuff on the sidewalks are not as cheap as they say.

Such a quaint, artsy, hippie town! I loved it! Spent hours walking from shop to shop! Parking was no problem, we parked in the square! There is a little bit of everything in this one shopping section! Loved it!!

If you are visiting Taos you must take a stroll around the Plaza. Enjoy music in the evening, get some souvenirs, buy a slushy at the Taos Mercantile and soak in the wonderful atmosphere of Northern New Mexico. Enjoy!
