Located in Old Scottsdale, there are many unique shops here from jewelry to painting to boutiques. Wife and I spent hours here browsing and shopping Many are native made. Even on a warm day the misters help cool us off.

What a way to spend an evening after a good dinner! The galleries are open late on Thursdays and nice to browse. There's lots of street art for cute photo ops.

Excellent Galleries, public art displays and more. Great walk, with the Trolley going through. Shade and misters everywhere, and benches and chairs to take a breather.

The galleries are spotty -- some great, some not so great, but the Art Walk on Thursday nights is lots of fun. We like to have dinner nearby and then stroll the galleries.

a must while in scottsdale. The collection and variety of art work is endless and awe inspiring..you might take home a piece or two or just admire.

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.
