“Historical San Augustin Plaza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

I walked around the plaza during the day & it was interesting. It was the closest to Mexico as we could get. Beautiful church & impressive stained glass. We stayed in La Posada so it was very convenient. If you want cheap shopping they are around this area.

“San Agustin Plaza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

It is historical sight, and there is the museum and the church. I gone through there at night walking, and I would recommend going in the day time. There are really bad night bars around the area. There are some characters who leave a lot to be desired. The shopping is not that great! I would stick to Mall del Notre or some outlet.

“Outstanding Scenic Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

As I was visiting the church we took a look around town, it was gorgeous....The only issue was parking. We had to park 2 blocks away because the public parking was going to close in an hour and they wouldn't allow us to park there. That didn't make any sense to me but whatever I guess..This is another attraction if you are ever in town take a look

“Authentic Old World Charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

We were in town during one of the events in the month-long George Washington Birthday Celebration - the Jamboozie - held in the general area of the plaza. There is interesting shopping in that area - extremely cheap stuff, but kind of fun to look at. Some of the characters around the plaza are a little bit dodgy looking, but there is a lot of security around all the time, and it's well-lit at night.
