If you like just looking at art (all kinds, but mostly SW themed), this is a very efficient way to do it. Start at the "top" of Canyon Road (plan to have a leisurely lunch at Teahouse restaurant), and check out some of the hundreds of galleries on both sides of the narrow Canyon Road. Some of the more interesting... More

Canyon Road, between Paseo de Peralta and Camino de Monte Sol, is lined with galleries, along with some notable restaurants (Geronimo, El Farol, The Compound). Although the galleries differ somewhat in style, many feature what a friend of mine terms "Texan art." This does not mean art created by Texans, but rather, large, flashy, expensive pieces designed to sell to... More

Canyon Rd. is the epicenter for all thing chic for Santa Fe as described by people who have a lot of money and are bored. There are many eating establishments and art galleries. More than you can shake a stick at. If you like crowds and traffic and very little parking, then go and enjoy. Santa Fe has so much... More

This narrow street overflows with art galleries and tiny cul d'sacs lead to many more hidden galleries.. One could easily spend an entire day strolling the length of Canyon Road, talking to many artists, and enjoying every type of art imaginable. If you can't find it here, you can't find it anywhere.

I almost passed on Canyon Road, however, I was glad I didn't. The road is lovely and the exterior sculptures alone are worth the walk. Design and art at its best. Well known restaurants along the way as well.

I went to paint with a group of plein air painters and we loved walking around Canyon road looking at Galleries, taking photos of the old adobe buildings and painting in this great old Santa Fe area

Canyon road is to art what Rodeo Drive (Beverly Hills) is to fashion and Bond Street is to antiques and jewels(London.) You can get there by shuttle from your hotel and you can either walk up hill or down with very affordable cafes and nationally renowned restaurants, sandwiched between a multitude of world class art galleries ,sculpture gallerias,gold smiths and...

The road is packed with art galleries from the beginning to the end. Most of them show quality art, paintings, sculptures, Indian and Western art. The owners are friendly and, of course they would prefer you to buy something, but they really do not mind if you are just looking without an intention of a purchase. Must visit in Santa... More

If you love art and art galleries, this is the place to go. I believe there are over 200 galleries in Santa Fe and most are on Canyon Road. We walked into most of them over 3 days but finally found the art we wanted to buy (though it was hard making a decision).

Very walkable, great shops and scenery. Seemed all the shop owners were inviting and friendly. No pressure to buy anything.
