We loved all the galleries, so convenient to each other. Street parking and a couple of lots offered parking choices. Sidewalks are pretty narrow in places, so you have to keep a look out for other visitors and traffic.

Canyon Road is considered the heart of art in Santa Fe. Very historic street full of art galleries in old adobe buildings. Even if not into art, a must see in Santa Fe just to walk the road.

We strolled and viewed during the "down" time between spring break and the becoming-busy season in May, so plenty of pops to have convos with artists and shop employees about artists and areas to show our guests. Very pleasant few hours. Shoulda shuttled to make better use of our time.

Walking and seeing the most unique and beautiful art on either side of the street. Sculptures, woodwork, metal work and of course paintings from people that come from all over the world.

The galleries along Canyon Rd. come at you in droves. Some are very good, others kitschy. It's definitely worth the walk up the road to pop in at different galleries. One is prone to gallery burnout, though, so be warned. We spent about 1.75 hrs. there, then went on to Museum Hill. In fairness, there are places to eat and... More

So many amazing, interesting and unique displays greet you, even before you get into a gallery. Bronze statues costing $80,000, interesting ceramic sculptures, a field full of copper wind ornaments and stone and metal chairs are just some of what you will see and experience. The people are friendly and most tolerated our Pomeranian, in fact many had water bowls... More

Parking was easy. Walking along the road was very entertaining. The variety of galleries made us interested for quite a while. People were friendly and welcoming. Loved the art. Would have liked more places to stop and eat.

A visit to Canyon Road is quite overwhelming, over 100 galleries all clustered together, it is hard to take it all in but well worth the effort if you love art. Every style imaginable is represented so I doubt anyone could be disappointed! We loved every step of the journey, amazing place!

How to spend the day in and out of art galleries. According to one of the galleries Santa Fe is the third best place in the world to buy art after New York and Paris. Every different style of art is represented. I am always surprised at the variety and how often the art . I live in Albuquerque so... More

Canyon Road is about a mile of very talented artist galleries and a few wonderful restaurants with equal artistic talent. I sugest walking from downtown Santa Fe and making a loop back through the residentual negiborhoods.
