Kayenta is a unique departure from the norm, focused on moderate land use, moderate-sustainable growth, and an appreciation for our magnificent natural setting. Nearby, residents find adventure in the southwest's abundance of places to explore. Zion National Park, Snow Canyon and Bryce Canyon National Park are within view. While just beyond the horizon, adventure seekers will discover places like the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell and Las Vegas. « less

Beautiful little community with customized houses to blend into the natural surrounding as a part of this huge chuck of desert reserve. Neat little art village with pottery shops and metal workings galleries. Nestled inside is Xetava Café which is so ornate and has the best blue corn waffle breakfast I've ever had for anyone whose looking for a neat... More

Every time we go into southern Utah we have to stop at this small but lovely Art Colony. The Artists and small shop owners have always been friendly even when we did not buy anything. We would wander in and out of the shops and they were willing to talk about the art and the artists. The people who live... More

Well, if you're into expensive Southwestern art then you'll probably like Kayenta. It's a very small area, so it'll only take you 15 min to walk it (unless you actually go into the shops).

The art shops were interesting with a good variety of paintings, sculptures, jewelry, etc, but they were very expensive. Fun to look at, but not worth buying.

If you like over priced art and over priced food, and a bunch of stuck up nature lovers then this is your place. They are rude and opinion aided, there is nothing to see except the red rocks and Utah has plenty of those in a lot better locations. I would never waist my time here.

There is only one restaurant, but it was good! It was nice to walk around the little artist community to enjoy (& I found some goodies to buy) the area. Nearby is Snow Canyon State Park, which is good to see on the same day. Enjoy more of nature's magic drving through or walking the trails.

Side trip proved to be great fun. Scenery on way is spectacular, the art scene is varied and artists friendly. So worth a side trip to see.

The art work is creative and beautiful. Maybe the tranquility and the beauty of the environment of this place give the artists inspiration to create their work.

This is a very unique village- truly a desert community. It's a must see when our friends come to visit. Great little spot for art and just to have coffee...
