There are a hundred galleries along Canyon Road and whether you are a collector or just an explorer it is a wonderful walk. There are two or three little restaurant/coffee shops so you can stop and gather your thoughts before making that special purchase. Huge variety from paintings and photography to incredible sculptures. This will be a highlight of your... More

If you love Art, Sculpture, Jewelry or people watching then you definitely will want to hit Canyon Road. Lined with Galleries and Restaurants, you can spend several hours here. The roads are very tight so if you can park elsewhere and walk to Canyon Road, that is the smartest choice, but there is a parking area toward the East End... More

Canyon Road is a great location to stroll and view art in many forms and styles. It is also a good place to enjoy a snack or have a meal at one of the many eating establishments along the way. It is a bit of an uphill walk but it is well worth it. The Santa Fe Pick Up transportation... More

Enjoyed an afternoon browsing through the widely varied art galleries on this charming street. You can spend as much or as little time as you want browsing the many galleries and grab a bite to eat at several of the quaint eateries (though we did not try any of those). A must-see if you visit Santa Fe.

We found the galleries on Canyon Road so much more interesting and unique than those on the square. Start here! Going in the off season was wonderful! While a few galleries were not open, we found that the gallery owners and employees spent a ton of time with us! We got to touch and hold and see things that they... More

As the 3rd largest art market in the country and 100+ galleries on this street alone , you cannot visit Santa Fe without strolling down Canyon road. Go to the end ( get a ride) and walk your way down back to town. I'd pick 6- 10 galleries and take some time to get to know the styles and artist... More

Canyon road is full of little galleries, dotted along the way with a couple of places to eat. It is a good place to walk along the narrow paved road that was once a burro trail. I don't necessarily recommend taking children here only because some of the galleries have "very expensive" pieces of art. Canyon road is however a... More

Canyon Road is wonderful; a throw back to "how it was", but prettied up as it is now galleries and shops rather than homes and farms and studios. but the spirit lingers, and a walk up Canyon is a terrific experience, especially when tthe weather is benign and the flowers are blooming. put on your comfortable shoes and make a...

I walked the whole street up and down slowly taking in all of the different pieces of sculptures and browsing in all of the galleries. Really enjoyed this part of town
