Santa Fe is arguably the oldest continuously inhabited colonial town in what is now the USA. The Santa Fe Plaza has been the center thereof for more than four centuries. It's well worth a visit. Stop, look, and enjoy!

The Plaza is beautiful. It's always busy on the weekends. They always have something going on. Lots of Spanish influence in the design. If you have animals they are welcome at the plaza. Lots of places to eat and shop as well.

Worth a visit! Lots of colorful and interesting shops featuring beautifully crafted silver jewelry and Santa Fe styled clothing. Stopped by the Cathedral at Assi which was visibly nice. Plenty of restaurants and sitting areas (in the quad) to just relax and people watch. Perfect...More
