A walk down this street and a stopping in at the galleries is a great experience and a great way to get a feel for Santa Fe. The art is very diversified and beautiful. Don't miss this walk.

My husband and I have been to Santa Fe many times. Our day on Canyon Road is always at the heart of our trip. I don't know of any place else quite like it. The galleries are varied in style. Everyone is always nice and welcoming whether you purchase or not. Prepare to spend the day meandering up and down... More

Prepare for a lot of walking. We browsed most if not all of the galleries here, stayed longer in the ones we enjoyed and quickly walked out in the ones that did not interest us. It was fun to hear various artists talked about their works with enthusiasm. There were really a lot of amazing but expensive art here and... More

Great wander and look area if you care for art and design. One of the best art areas in the US. You can burn a day here with no issue and spend a lot more than you intended. Great restaurants/bars on the same road

Visitors to Santa Fe must take a walk up Canyon Road because it's an extraordinary way to see a huge display of brilliant and very varied art in a relaxed and un crowded setting.

Go see for yourself--one of the areas of Santa Fe that people always talk about. Galleries, unique homes, bistros and just a gorgeous walk.

On canyon road you can find some of the best art in America and all types. The sculptures are incredible. You will find wonderful sculptures of children, animals and the female form. There also wind sculptures. In one gallery you will find amazing fantasy paintings including including originals from "the Fellowship of the Ring" and also "Game of Thrones".

My husband and I visit Canyon Road often. We usually have our dog with us.( Many of the galleries put out water bowls.) We've lived in Santa Fe for almost twelve years, but still enjoy exploring like a tourist. The art is so different in the various galleries, from Southwestern to Russian. The pieces and artists also change, so there's... More

As Santa Fe residents, we always take visitors for a stroll on at least part of Canyon Road to see the huge diversity of art that caters to all tastes and budgets. Even people who don't have any intention of buying anything are welcomed into the 100+ galleries to see and learn. It used to be by and for predominately... More
