This street is full of statues of many styles. It is fun to walk the street and look at all the art in the area, but you would need a big bank account to buy any of it. The area I found most fun was a wind park. There were many twirling elements among regular statues.

Of course Santa Fe is known for the number of artists and galleries it has but Canyon Rd. Is THE place to find it. In one mile, down both sides of the street are galleries, shops and restaurants that could keep you busy for days. Unlike a museum, you can buy the art here. You'll find sculptures,, jewelry, boutiques and... More

On a beautiful day it is well worthwhile to walk each side of Canyon Road (making certain you 'peek' into the gardens and alleyways behind the "homes". Not many of you will be able to afford any of the paintings or sculptures, but treat it like a museum visit and you'll have a wonderful morning or afternoon.

One gallery after another with indoor and outdoor art displays (Get a map so you can check off where you have been.) . Sculptors galore given that the Shidoni Foundry is nearby. Lots of western themed works on canvas and in jewelry but also abstract and traditional works on canvas and paper. Many restaurants of various styles so take your... More

Canyon Road has beautiful sculptures, fountains, the giant whirligig sculptures which are popular in this area, lots of lovely landscaping and pots overflowing with flowers as you walk along the road. There are several nice spots for snack, drink, ice cream or a nice meal. And the galleries are the stars of course. I just bought my first major piece... More

Canyon Road was a fun area to walk..lots of galleries and shops. Unfortunatley, Santa Fe has lost some of its charm to the tourism business. All too may galleries opted for "accessible" "easy" art instead of off beat, authentic, well crafted and known artists. A traveler still needs to go there but lessen your expectations and you will have fun.

Very nice galleries but very expensive. Did have a nice lunch on open patio. Classic Santa Fe architecture.

It was such fun to walk down Canyon Road. The galleries are marvelous and you can find wonderful Southwest art in all of them. There are galleries for all styles. They were all welcoming and helpful. I'd love to return soon.

Next time we will go to the galleries we like the most and not spend our whole day there. So much of the art is contemporary. We really liked the Alexander Stevens Gallery. We liked her artists and more reasonable prices. Alexandra is very helpful and kind.

Canyon road has a lot of things to look at.. art, sculpture, home goods, even some clothing. Park up at the public parking on Canyon road, it puts you right by all the vendors and you can walk up one side and then the other. You can drive up E. Alameda to Camino Escondido and back up Canyon to the... More
