|The Plaza Hotel, known when it was built in 1882 as The Belle of the Southwest, sits majestically presiding over the Old Town Plaza in Las Vegas, New Mexico - the other Las Vegas! The plaza this summer is lush and green from spring rains, with rich towering oaks swaying in the breeze and creating a shady oasis in the middle of this fascinating little city. Shops dot the Plaza and Bridge Street (where Doc Holliday set up shop back in the day). The air fairly begs one to breathe a little deeper. Rest, relax and enjoy the history of the Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas, New Mexico.
