Established in 1986, Liquid Light Glass is a hub for glass-blown art, sculptures, ornaments, vases and more. The shop is located in the Baca Street Arts District, an up-and-coming neighborhood in Santa Fe home to retail shops, furniture showrooms and art boutiques. Travelers can visit the studio to watch founder and owner Elodie Holmes create the colorful glass art or even sign up to take a glass-blowing class (which visitors highly recommend). Past patrons said walking through the shop to see all the unique glass-blown art is a treat; many added that they loved the glass flower-making glass and that the instructor was very patient and helpful.

You'll find Liquid Light Glass about 2 miles southwest of the Santa Fe Plaza. The store is open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Several types of glass-making classes are available and prices vary depending on the type of class. Check out the website for additional information.

#1 Canyon Road

If there's any doubt that Santa Fe is a prime destination for art lovers, Canyon Road quashes it. Situated just east of the Santa Fe Plaza, Canyon Road is home to a slew of art galleries selling renowned artwork from famed artists such as Fernando Botero and cultural treasures like hand-woven Navajo rugs and Southwestern wood carvings. The area is touted as an art lover's mecca because of the variety of mediums used to highlight art. Pop into the different galleries (there are more than 50) along the street and you'll find everything from jewelry and pottery to sculptures and paintings. The street itself is also a feast for the eyes: Many of the galleries found here are housed in historic adobe buildings laced with brilliantly colored flowers, art installations are often showcased outside and the spicy odor of chile peppers wafts from the doorways of top-notch eateries like Geronimo Restaurant and Compound Restaurant.

Recent visitors said the best way to experience this arts district is simply by strolling down the street, adding that it's a wonderful way to experience art without being stuck indoors or inside a single museum. Travelers were impressed with everything from the variety of art to the pueblo architecture and said there are ample opportunities to snap photos of this vibrant site.
