Old Town is a beautiful historic part of Albuquerque. Lots of beautiful architecture, shopping, dining.
This is where Albuquerque was founded in the early 1700s. Lots of tiny shops, fairly touristy. If art, culture, and the southwest is your thing, then this is a must stop. Parking can be a real pain if you decide to visit when lots of other people are visiting too, so be warned! Cars were not around…
