Very lovely to walk around the galleries in this area. Much of the art reflects the Southwestern style of Arizona. This is a safe area with many galleries close together for an easy walk.

Within a block of Old Town Scottsdale you can stroll through the Arts District. Many beautiful galleries and fabulous sculptures throughout the district. A must activity when visiting Scottsdale.

There are some very good galleries in Old Town and a large number of fairly average tourist shops as well. It is an interesting area and worth a visit.

Large number and variety of galleries within a few blocks walk. Got to appreciate diverse variety of genres, prices, etc. More than one gallery had welcoming staff/owners that explained and described pieces and their creators.

On a usual Thursday in October the majority of shoppes/Galleries were closed at 11 am. Strange. Perhaps this is a weekend activity? The few galleries that were open were nice and the proprietors friendly.

Go on a Thursday evening for the Art walk! It isn't all western either, there is usually something for every art taste.

There is an art walk along Main on Thursday nights (not so in the hotter summer months). Most of the galleries are open there, in addition to restaurants and bars.
