Enjoyed walking the town. Most things seemed closed at night. Found a couple souvenir shops to buy some shirts. Ate some delicious chimis at Backstreet Grill. Beautiful area and architecture. My daughter wants to visit the museum next time.

We spent an afternoon in mid-October in Old Town and enjoyed the slower pace. It was nice walking to all the shops around town. San Felipe de Neri Church, several restaurants and a nice park are also within walking distance.

There is adequate pay parking off Central. Do not try to park on the street. It is compact and easy to walk around. Nice people in the stores. Not pushy. Some unique items to buy.

We explored Old Town during our stay for the Balloon Fiesta. It was crowded and finding a place to park was difficult, but we enjoyed the shops and the music and dance in the square.

We enjoyed the continuous music in the plaza, shops, and food! I actually like it better than the Santa Fe Plaza.
