The streets are full of fun people day or night. Great place to walk and shop and dine at the many restaurants and bars. It is very romantic, with horse and buggy rides and the streets all lit up at night. I really enjoyed walking through the area.

If you're looking for a souvenir or gift, this is the place to look. Lots of shops under one roof as well as along the closed off street.

Bring you bargaining skills along, the vendors are known to bargain on prices for many of the items sold. There are several places to eat at the Market and plenty of... More

This is a great place to visit for a feel of Mexico without going to Mexico. The same things you can buy in Mexico without the drive. Beautiful things, colors and prices aren't that much different! A must see if downtown!

Loud, crowded and fun! All kinds of vendors, from inexpensive on up - leather, ceramics, clothing, toys, food, souvenirs and lots of kids.

A bit touristy, but if it's souvenirs you want - this is the place. There are also a couple good restaurants in this part of town. We got there early in the day, right when the shops opened, so parking was no problem.

Yes I know its a shopping meca, but after entering the 3rd-4th gift shop and realizing most all of them are selling the same merchandise I just lost interest! I did discover an excellent Tex-Mex restaurant I had the best chicken enchilada plate ever at La Margarita so the trip was not lost

If wall-to-wall hot sweaty people crammed into a market area with "music" blasting as you try to navigate then this is your spot. We had considered getting some food here but my cholesterol was simmering with all the fried food sizzling around. I am sure it could be considered "fun" and entertaining but not for those who don't like being... More
