Visiting Albuquerque

Hi all,

Excuse me for dropping in on your board, but I was wondering if you could point me in the direction of some fun stuff to do in Albuquerque? I'm visiting a friend there in April, who just moved there herself.

Any restaurant/museum/other fun stuff suggestions would be much appreciated. 

TIA!

  • You'll definitely have to get some New Mexican food.  Sadie's and El Pinto are my favorites.  The weather should be warm (maybe a little windy), so you could do some hiking.  I'll leave it to some of the other girls to tell you where since I don't do much hiking.  You should ride the tram, it's a sight to behold.  And Santa Fe is only an hour north, plus we have the train that goes up there.

    Old Town Plaza is a fun place (lots of good food down there too) and I'm a sucker for most of the Nob Hill bars if you want some nightlife.

    Have fun!  I'm sure some of the other girls (Flame, that's you) can give you better info...since all my family is from here we never really do many touristy things. 

    Damn you Nest for screwing up my siggy!

  • Ditto everything Duff said. I moved here in October and I have some friends coming to visit in a few weeks- I would also suggest riding the Tram if you want to see some good scenery.

    The downtown area (in addition to Nob Hill and Old Town) is good for walking around and hitting up bars/restaurants....

    Okay, since Duff called me out.

    I answered your post over on the Travel board. he only thing I didn't cover was outdoor stuff.  The Bosque (the big cottonwood forest in teh middle of town) is a nice walk taht time of year.  With the snowpack this year, you hit snow pretty low on the Sandias and you'll hit snow early on all the trails unless we have a crazy fast melt this year. I would also look into going out to tent rocks - http://www.blm.gov/nm/st/en/prog/recreation/rio_puerco/kasha_katuwe_tent_rocks.html - up on Cochiti Pueblo. It's a nice afternoon hike and I love Canyon Trail.
