Check out Old Town, a historic neighborhood heavily influenced by both Mexican and indigenous cultures. The neighborhood is also the site of the original city center back when Albuquerque was founded. Adobe houses, colorful crafts, galleries, and street performers line the streets here. Downtown Albuquerque, on the other hand, has all the modern skyscrapers and business of the city. Nob Hill is the trendy section of the city with eclectic shops, hip cafes and restaurants, and the best nightlife.
Head to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center to learn about the people who were the first to live in the area, or check out the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History to learn about the city’s history and take a look at over 7,000 pieces of art. Sandia Peak Tram gets you high outside the city while providing you with the best views, but if you want the nature without getting outside the city, head to Paseo del Bloque and wander around the 16 miles of trails.
