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.

There is not enough time in a day to see all the galleries and shops. I don't think two days is enough. There were so many beautiful art pieces.

90% of the galleries were closed during the Scottsdale ArtWalk on our 13th annual vacation. We couldn't have felt more disappointed in something that had become a tradition for us.

What an enjoyable way to see the town, galleries, and art. A nice easy stroll to search for art and at the same time stop in to visit some nice galleries. Also plenty of shopping too. We spent just about 2 hours strolling through galleries...More

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.
