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.

I have been here before but I don't remember it being so nice. Walk at night when the lights are on, it is very pretty.

It's hard to beat a trip to the Main Street Arts District, whether you are visiting Scottsdale or (like me) a full time resident. There are plenty of different dining options, lots of shopping opportunities, horse drawn carriages and pedi-cabs, and plenty of convenient parking.

Thursday is the art walk, but i believe there are "special events" that might have other than regular hours til 5pm. Usually Thursday is it after 5pm

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.
