Just finished the Art Walk in Scottsdale. Beautiful sunset on the canal (Waterfront). Free public parking and shops galore! Everything within walking distance...great restaurants.

A nice selection of art galleries; wide range of art work. Most galleries are open on Thursday evenings (7-9) for the Art Walk. Funny though, other Art Walks I've attended have wine/ snacks at the galleries. Not here. Crowd was pretty active though.

Great street of art galleries. Much better than Canyon Road in Santa Fe, NM. We bought art in 2 different galleries.

This is a beautiful street with many art shops, decorated in the old western style. At the end of the street is a park with live music performance on Sunday afternoons. Great relaxed atmosphere.

it's a good place to go for a walk and breathe with some art. Opened even on Saturdays and Sundays, so that's cool.

We really enjoyed our day of strolling through the galleries. One complaint would be that they don't open until 11. It would be much nicer to do this during the cooler hours of morning. But the trolley does help with that. :)

Every Thursday night the galleries are open from 7 to 9 pm. We try to take advantage of this each time we visit Scottsdale. It's a fun walk up & down Main St. and usually their are a few local artists present in the galleries. There is a wide range of art available from $140 to $90,000. We didn't see... More

This precinct for the arts - and the other streets around it - are great generally for shopping, art browsing, buying, having coffee, eating and walking. There are so many galleries and eateries catering for any taste that one wonders how on earth they all manage to survive financially, especially when - as when we visited - there were not... More

Every Thursday night galleries are kept open until 9:00pm; we had an opportunity to talk to some of the artists and gallery owners who are very knowledgeable and love to share their expertise. The trolley is a great way to go from gallery to gallery to restaurants and other areas in old Scottsdale
