The atmosphere here is that of artsy meets the Southwest, with everything from hand-blown glass and handmade shoes to paintings, pottery, silver, leather, silk, music boxes, and even furniture. The plaza was originally conceived as an artist’s community in the 1970s, and it’s not unusual to see an artist working on one of their latest pieces. It’s best to take your time walking through this beautiful plaza, because you never know what’s around the next corner or through the next archway. Cobblestone walkways and fountains trickling make this truly a one-of-a-kind shopping event.
Wedding also take place in this plaza. There’s a small chapel on the grounds that is the perfect location for a spring wedding, as is the beautiful courtyards. Don’t be surprised to see a wedding party or two.
Parking is free on the grounds as well as across the street. Getting in and out of the center can be a little difficult, as the road that it sits on (Highway 179) is a major thoroughfare for the city and gets very busy. There are several public restrooms on the grounds as well as drinking fountains. Comfortable shoes a recommended, as there are stairs and cobblestone walkways.

The only downside is the traffic getting out. I recommend going with the traffic rather than turning across it when leaving. You can turn around a block or two down the street far more easily than waiting for a break in traffic.

Spend a day at Tlaquepaque after a day of hiking, jeeping and enjoying the strenuous activites that Sedona offers. Tlaquepaque is an artist village and landmark since the 1970s, the dream come true of Abe Miller. As you twist and turn through the four courtyards (you will swear there were more), there are fountains, flowers, scupture, restaurants and stopping places you won't want to resist.
Named for a suburb of Guadalajara, within a short time, more than 40 shops filled the niches. Wander around, sit by the fountains, peek in the shops, nibble on the great food. Tlaquepaque is a place to relax. The artists have brought their work outside for you to enjoy whether wondering at the wind scuptures or posing in the funky metal art work chairs. A shortcut down Canyon Road, easily accessible although the parking lot can be a bit hair raising.
The Sedona Trolleys might be a better choice if you want to maintain that wonderful feeling of tranquility. There are also several festivals like the Cinco de Mayo Ballet, the Fiesta, and the Luniminaras but don't worry if you miss an event. This is a place for languid relaxations, smiles at the surprises around the corners and a day of relaxation that will make you come back.
