Canyon Road is always a great adventure. Lots of fabulous galleries and great art abounds. It is also a great way to get a little exercise in too.

Canyon Road used to be better. There is a lot more schlock today (how I feel about Sedona too) BUT if you are selective and hit the right galleries you can see some amazing art. It depends on what kind of art you're drawn to--Canyon Road can provide. It is a nice place to stroll too although the sidewalk situation... More

This my long stretch with over 70 galleries of a variety of art is an art lovers dream. We spend a weekday morning going to about 10 of the galleries, I'm just taking it all in. Each of the galleries have the unique style carrying different artists and almost all of them had a very friendly person attending the desk.we... More

Canyon Road truly has outstanding galleries and it's an amazing stroll. Be prepared for some pretense, but overall, lots of great galleries.

Wide variety of artwork and friendly curators/staff. Also, there's a nice tea house at the end of the road with very good gingerbread, served with lemon curd and whipped cream. Worth the walk.

This is one of the best "Roads" anywhere. From contemporary to traditional, from print to sculptures this is must experience. The entire road is full of art galleries. My only disappointment was that instead of meeting any of the artists who were represented in the galleries, there was a Gallorist. I had never heard that term before. They were informative... More

We visited mid-week after the holidays, so the crowds were very sparse. I think this helped us enjoy it more. Parking was not an issue. We had a lot of great conversations with the people working in the galleries. Again, because sometimes we were the only ones in there, they were very chatty about the artists, type of work, recommendations... More

We visited several Art Galleries, the staff at all galleries were very welcoming and knowledgeable, it was a bit of surprise that many had moved from East Coast. I did not know that art scene in Santa Fe is #3 in the country. We definitely would recommend our friends and relatives to visit Santa Fe and spend some time in... More

For first-time visitors to Santa Fe and veteran tourists alike, Santa Fe is a must-see. There are art galleries and shops for every taste and budget and more beauty than the eye can behold. Be sure and check out the wind sculptures and kinetics at the Wilford Gallery, and the amazing bronzes at Patricia Carlisle Fine Art. Have a nosh... More
