If you love art and boutique shopping, we know just the place for you to wile away several hours while staying at The Arabella. Tlaquepaque Arts & Shopping Village has made a name for itself as the must-have Sedona shopping experience, with everything from eclectic bronze sculpture and blown-glass creations to designer casual wear and fine contemporary jewelry.
Originally conceived as an artist community and styled after a traditional Mexican village, the Tlaquepaque (pronounced T-la-keh-pah-keh) shopping village has been a Sedona landmark since the 1970s, offering more than 50 specialty shops and galleries. Wander from boutique to gallery and back again along cobblestone pathways past vine-covered stucco walls and sycamore trees, and through elegant arched entryways. Stumble upon artists at work on one-of-a-kind pieces in their gallery, discover a distinctive gift just perfect for that special someone … one could almost forget they’re out shopping. Almost.
