In the city of Santa Fe, you will discover a half mile of things to do on a street called Canyon Road. In this one seemingly small area, you will find hundreds of restaurants, galleries, and boutiques. It shouldn’t be surprising that you must walk up and down this road dozens of times during your visit, so you do not miss anything that piques your interest.
3 Must-Do Activities When Wandering Down Canyon Road
Explore Different Types of Artwork
There are more than eighty galleries, as well as studios, on this stretch of Canyon Road. You will manage to see everything from modern and abstract art to traditional, Native American, and western art. A couple of the best places to add to your itinerary include A Sea in the Desert Gallery, Canyon Road Contemporary, In Art Santa Fe, and Mark White Fine Art.
Dine on Delectable Cuisine
There are only a few restaurants on Canyon Road, but each one serves some of the best foods you will eat in Santa Fe. If you are simply looking for a cup of coffee or tea, then The Teahouse or Café de Artistes will be your best option. If you are searching for something more, then Geronimo or The Compound will have the exact items you are craving.
Everyone seems to love shopping at least a little when they are on vacation. While there are many big box stores in Santa Fe, you will prefer the intimate qualities of the boutiques along Canyon Road. Each boutique offers one-of-a-kind creations, whether they are clothing items or jewelry. There are eighteen boutiques in all, and I recommend stopping in each of them. However, if your time is limited, you may want to consider at least checking out Bittersweet Designs, Homefrocks, and Rockaway Opals.
Special Events Held on Canyon Road
There are many special events held on Canyon Road throughout the year. You may want to plan your visit, so you can be in Santa Fe for when your favorite event is taking place. The special events you will want to attend include:
Spring Art Festival
Canyon Road Art and Wine Stroll
Historic Canyon Road Paint and Sculpt Out
Holiday Block to Block Party
Christmas Eve Farolito Walk
As you can see, you must plan to spend an entire day on Canyon Road. Between all the shopping, dining, and art adventures available, you can talk to the owners of the businesses and the locals that stop in.
