I live in
. I would say that the best part of Albuquerque is Nob hill because it is pretty popular and it is lined with plenty of shops like the Buffalo Exchange where you can get good name brand clothes cheap, I would also recommend checking out downtown on the weekends. I also say to check out the zoo.
I had a wonderful time while in
. I made many new acquaintances and the Indian Market Events were more than I expected. I will be returning again to Santa Fe.
There are lots of things to do in
. What's fabulous about Alb is the bus system. It's so cheap -- like a dollar and you can use the same ticket all day and the buses come like every 15 minutes. I didn't stay at the hostel but checked out the entire city and loved it. Nob Hill is great as the readers above say, but ALSO check out The Old Town District -- that is right off of Rt66/Central Ave near the hostel -- a 1 minute ride by bus or 15 min walk. The Old Town District is the original, old part of the city that was once a part of the old Spanish Empire. The square looks like a scene from the Old West. Check out The American International Rattlesnake Museum there plus the church across the street from it that has a cool gift shop. Lots of shops and copper-topped bars there too. Also if you're into archaeology or geology -- check out Petroglyph Monument which are these old pictures and paintings from the post-caveman days. It's near the Mesa (ancient, dead…
One of the greatest aspects of
is the blending of so many different cultures- Hispanic, Native American (several cultures) and Anglo. If you only stay at Nob Hill, you only get to experience a tiny piece of what Albuquerque (and New Mexico) is. Definitely come in the beginning of October for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta- the largest single gathering of hot air balloons in the world. It draws balloonists from all over the world- Africa, China, Japan, Germany, Great Britian, France, Russia, the Czech Republic... I could go on forever. It is one of the most amazing things you will ever experience in your life. Bring a camera! The weather in October is perfect as well. Take the tram from the base of the Sandia Mountains to the crest- especially for sunset. Albuquerque is a beautiful city that shouldn't be missed.
Come visit for Christmas, if you can. On Christmas Eve, everyone's houses are lined with luminarias (paper bags with candles), and everyone walks through town and visits. It's a beautiful, non-commercial, community-oriented way to spend Christmas! Also, the best restaurant in town is Fuego, in La Posada de
-- but it's VERY expensive. If you enjoy the arts or architecture, be sure to visit the Santa Fe Opera House. It's a gorgeous semi-outdoors building-- I saw Carmen there, and during her death scene, we were also watching a lightning storm. Cold, but fabulous! Santa Fe is a great place to visit. Be warned, however, that the shopping is expensive-- and if you don't like pretentious art galleries and boutiques, you probably won't enjoy shopping there at all.
doesn't have much going for it except for the area called Nob Hill around the U of New Mexico. A funky, hip enclave of intreresting stores, restaurants and galleries.
