|About these ratings|
When you need a break from the trails, swap out those hiking boots for something more fetching and head to the Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village. Perched at the intersection of routes 89A and 179, this sizable outdoor shopping center was designed in the style of a traditional Mexican village. The stucco walls house a variety of art galleries, New Age shops and restaurants, while the cobblestone streets and mosaic fountains provide a charming, old-fashioned atmosphere.
Many travelers highly recommend spending a few hours perusing Tlaquepaque (pronounced Tel-AH-ki-PAH-ki). As one frequent visitor tells TripAdvisor, "The setting is absolutely beautiful, the restaurants are great, and the shops are filled with unique items you can't find anywhere else [but] Sedona." Some recent shoppers do note that the village has a bit of a touristy vibe.
Tlaquepaque's shops and galleries are open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., although restaurants maintain different hours. For more information, visit the Tlaquepaque website.
