We wandered into this area and browsed some of the shops. It was a Sunday and many were closed. We were very impressed with the artwork. Most were way over our head - price wise, but if we had the money, this would be a place to shop.

most were boutique and had nice helpful staff, some who could answer a variety of questions. Probably one of the best parts of Scottsdale really, glad we took it in.

So pleasant to take a stroll on Thursday evenings during ArtWalk when the galleries are open. Most are happy you stop in, even just to browse their wares, and are happy to explain the artists they are featuring. Many offer complimentary wine or snacks, which are lovely for your evening walk. So nice to be able to learn about different... More

For those dealers who are tired of people wondering in not knowing if they were going to buy - we did BUY! And we would buy again from the Legacy Gallery.

If you like southwest jewelry and art there is a huge selection.

Good place to stroll for 2-3 hours and many restaurants mixed in for a good half day-maybe not so good with kids, but there is... More

We enjoy the Main Street ArtsDistrict. We especially like the Thursday evening art walks. On Thursdays, the galleries stay open into the evening and the atmosphere is delightful.

Nice galleries. Easy flat walk in the Old Town. Casual area. Not as uptight as Canyon Drive in Santa Fe.
