The Historic Plaza, a 1.2 mile walk from our home, is the heart of Santa Fe. Surrounded by stores, museums, galleries, and restaurants it is a perfect place to begin a visit.

We love The Hemp Shop, The Shed, Cafe Pasqual's, Coyote Cafe and St. Francis Cathedral. There's often entertainment in the summer. Even when the plaza's busy, there's still a peacefulness you can tap into. Allow yourself to be still. Sit on one of the benches. See what happens.

This square or as Santa Feans say it the Plaza has been the heart and soul of Santa Fe, as well as its literal center, since its concurrent establishment with the city in 1610. Originally designed as a meeting place, it has been the site of innumerable festivals and other historical, cultural, and social events. Long ago the plaza was a dusty hive of activity as the staging ground and terminus of the Santa Fe Trail. Today, those who congregate around the central monument enjoy excellent people watching. Live music and dancing are often staged on the gazebo/bandstand in summer. At Christmastime the plaza is decked out with lights.

The easiest place to go hiking around Santa Fe. It's a big area covering the foothills, so not too strenuous, but you feel like you've gotten out of town a bit. In summer, it's nice and shady under the cottonwood trees.

The Historic Plaza is a must for for first timers and it's fresh every time for repeat visitors ! Here is the Palace of Governors where the local Indian Artist display their work. Lining the Plaza are boutique shops, famous restaurants and entry to several museums.

Lets face it....Summer on the plaza is so much fun when the famous BANDSTAND starts up. Every evening beginning in July - mid August you can bring a folding chair (which I provide in my casa) walk the quick 8 minutes to the plaza, bring a refreshment or purchase one of those $5 tacos on the plaza corner and listen to free music till 9pm. It begins around 6pm. Lots of locals, street folks, kids, families and a few celebrities to keep you entertained.Recommended for:Family Travelers
