galleries, boutiques in santa fe… oh my!

by jani on August 20, 2012

We’re back in Santa Fe. I wish. I love that place, because it has something for everyone. Just a few blocks from our hotel, La Posada de Santa Fe Resort and Spa, lies a famous street, Canyon Road. On this stretch of road there are over a hundred art galleries. There are also boutiques here and there, but the true draw are the galleries. Every medium is represented in this art lovers’ district. It is definitely worth your time!

Just a few of the many galleries we visited.

 Do I enjoy hamming? Silly question! Give me a sombrero that is heavy and larger than any I’ve ever seen. I don’t care who’s around… it’s going on my head!

I’m a lucky girl for lots of reasons, but one that I know not every girl shares, is a hubs that enjoys shopping as much as I! HB seriously is the ultimate best window shopper, patiently waiting as I try on things. He’s basically perfect that way! He would sometimes beat me to the store looking for that perfect piece of turquoise. I wrote about it in Kingman Mine Turquoise. He finally found a piece, but not during our visit to Santa Fe. There are some spectacular shops and boutiques that are just waiting to be explored! 

If you’re looking for art or a shopoholic’s dream, then Santa Fe is the place for you. If you plan on visiting Santa Fe, you’ll need to fly into Albuquerque then drive the hour northeast on Interstate 25. We planned a road trip from Utah. It was so worth the drive!

Have you ever visited Santa Fe? Is it on your bucket list yet?
