I admit, I'm not much of an arts person. So it was with trepidation that I joined my wife for an exploration of Canyon Road. But I must admit I really enjoyed it. For a mile or so you can explore and endless array of galleries and small shops. What made it a great time for me were the sculptures... More

We walked in the early evening after the shops had closed. There is so much beautiful sculpture and "yard" art. It was a relaxing and romantic time. Would love to return to when shops are open.

If you don't walk canyon road then why did you come to Santa Fe. I have been to Spring Street in NYC, the similar area of Paris and this is the best single place to see art in the world.

I love canyon road! Why? Because its beautiful, tranquil, had lovely owner operated galleries that try each in their own way to showcase their unique talents at collecting and showing their art inventory. It's not a tourist trap and you do not have to buy anything. It's a nice lovely walk through the old part of the residential neighborhood that... More

A wonderful way to spend part of a day, strolling along and stopping in the variety of art galleries. Sculptures, paintings, and antiques are all available. Even if you're not in the market to buy, just viewing the houses in this historic district is worth the walk.

Canyon Road is like no other place. For a half mile or more, it is flanked with art galleries on both sides. The wind sculptures in two galleries caught our attention right off as they silently spin in even a weak breeze. There is art of every type here; in pretty little shops that seem to be genuinely old buildings.... More

Travel this road by foot if possible but great by car as well. This artist community will take your breath away. Galleries are lined up one after another but the homes of these artists are works of art themselves.
