Such a wonderful area of Santa Fe to explore. Numerous galleries and shops to visit with all types of art...paintings, sculpture, hand crafts, etc....limited parking is available in the lot behind the galleries on the left hand side just as you turn to go up Canyon Road. Then you can walk up the road visiting shops.

Unique experience walking down a road lined only with art galleries! Started my walk fortified with brunch at The Teahouse (fantastic) and relished the experience of visiting the variety of galleries represented. Highly recommend you keep a couple of hours minimum to appreciate the fine art feast and longer depending on your appetite.

Canyon Road is known for its art galleries and great restaurants. Geronimo and El Farol are awesome, but we didn't dine there on this visit. There was some fun art to see, and a wide variety to see from sculptures, oils, water colors, ceramics, art glass and more. The downfall was things were grossly overpriced art and the bourgie shop...

I was told there are over 100 galleries on this one street alone. The diversity and quality of galleries is staggering. You have to go to NYC to even get close but in Santa Fe there are no snooty associates looking down their noses at you, just helpful friendly people willing to help you enjoy your visit. My favorites were... More

Santa Fe is my favorite city, The Canyon Road area is a gem. Homes along the street have been converted into galleries. The gallery staff were friendly and freely gave information on their artists. A wonderful day looking at art.

Yes, this is a high-end gallery walk that features works likely way too expensive for the average tourist to purchase. But the road itself has a lovely aesthetic, and truly, you can't do Santa Fe without Canyon Road. You'll get a good sense of the contemporary art scene today. Not all works will be for you -- but there is... More
