Enjoyed walking and visiting all of the galleries along Canyon Road. Everyone was very friendly and helpful in the shops. The only downside would be the lack of walkable sidewalks along the road. Watch for traffic!

We had read about Canyon Road so we decided to go. Very difficult to get through, no parking except for the pay to park lot which was not close to the shops. We did not enjoy this.

Canyon Road has so many art galleries and stores that you could spend several days here and not see everything. There are beautiful art installations everywhere and it takes several trips to see everything.

There is so much art here, it may take you several trips up and down the road just to see all the statuary and bronze works that are outside. There is one art gallery after another and their receptions are fun. Everyone is welcome to...More

I spent 2 hours on a small portion of the road to visit a handful of galleries, but it’s obvious I’ll need to return for at least 2 months to enjoy the rest of this amazing area.

Neat area to drive and walk through. Lots of great art and sculptures. NOTHING is cheap here - and there were not as many restaurants/cafes places to take a break as I would have liked.

You can spend all day in this area of Santa Fe! I suggest stopping by the Tea Room for Scones and tea!

When in Santa Fe take a drive or walk down canyon road. You will see all kinds of galleries and restaurants. This is a must see adventure. It’s is not too far from the plaza and capitol building. Enjoy it.

If you are an art lover you will appreciate the many colorful galleries lining this road. Even more, you will enjoy interacting with many of the artists and discovering how the area actually inspires them. Very enjoyable!

Hi Lisa, yes, there are lots at both ends of Canyon Road. One is free; the other is paid. However, I think it would be difficult to park a camper there. You might try looking for a spot along E. Alameda St., which runs... More

Hi Pam! Great question. While a guide is not necessary to visit Canyon Road, a tour can offer insight and a nuanced (and fun!) experience of the area and of the artwork on view. Some folks find it helpful to take a tour... More
