Traveling and art go hand in hand. One great destination for art aficionados and novices alike is Santa Fe, New Mexico, a mecca for art, history and culture. Have you experienced the charming Canyon Art Road? It’s only one mile long, yet hosts over one hundred galleries, studios and designers. You can spend hours strolling, even taking part in their Art Walk, and refueling at one of the many coffee shops or adorable cafes lining the road. You can even book a guided tour, an interactive experience ensuring you won’t miss the must-see galleries and even meet local artists. This tour caters to adults and children age 10 and up; if you are traveling with younger kids, they also offer a kid-friendly tour. And don’t forget Meow Wolf. Visitors will enjoy Santa Fe’s handmade jewelry, Native American crafts and art-inspired eats. A long weekend there is inspiring, and the journey will feel like art itself.
