Albuquerque may be known for Route 66 and its famous green chile, but there’s much more to know—and love—about this lively city. Whether you’re a native Albuquerquean looking to mark another local experience off your bucket list or an out-of-towner in search of a few vacation ideas, let this third edition of 100 Things to Do in Albuquerque Before You Die be your guide.
The book celebrates the top ways to discover the city, from a public art walk to must-sip margaritas. No Duke City exploration is complete without getting outdoors, such as hiking among petroglyphs and soaking in hot springs. Eating is a competitive sport in the Duke City, so why not try a soda fountain–turned–New Mexican food restaurant or a bike-in-only breakfast spot? Cheer for New Mexico United, discover a secret gallery, shop at a restored 1930s motor lodge, ride a stucco trolley, and more. Before you head out on your next adventure, check out this revised list featuring 25 new destinations to see what makes Albuquerque a world unto itself.
