Francisco - Armijo - Otero Addition, Albuquerque, NM 87102, USA
For the countless road-trippers who still follow the old 'Mother Road' through the western U.S., Albuquerque is one of the highlights. Much of the modern city might seem indistinguishable from suburban anywhere, but if you're on your way to the...

2400 Central Ave SE, Albuquerque, NM 87106, USA
Frontier Restaurant is smack in the middle of the University of New Mexico neighborhood with student friendly hours from 5am-1am. It's casual and busy, the food is cheap and good and their green chili cheeseburger was featured on Man V. Food on...

4803 Rio Grande Blvd NW, Los Ranchos De Albuquerque, NM 87107, USA

The Spanish-style bed and breakfast is famous for lavender, the focus of lectures, festivals, cooking classes, and a line of spa products distilled on-site. Rooms feature beehive-shaped kiva fireplaces, wood floors, and traditional New Mexican...

I love ordering fancy salads at restaurants, primarily because they're way more interesting than what I make at home, and Vinaigrette does not disappoint. The menu offers a broad range of signature and seasonal salads made with fresh,...

The BioPark in Albuquerque, NM houses large ponds and gardens, a rose garden, an impressive aquarium, "homestead" farm, areas for children to play and a couple bio-spheres: glass covered jungle plus a hot desert. Artwork is around every corner as...

White Mesa, New Mexico 87053, USA
I love mountain biking! I am basically obsessed with the activity, have been racing for half my life, and spend the majority of my disposable income on bike related activities. I would do it every single day if I could and at times I do. There are...

30 Tramway Rd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87122, USA
The Sandía Mountains rise to over 10,000 feet behind Albuquerque. From the top, the view over New Mexico is unparalleled: on a clear day, your eyes can take in eleven thousand square miles--almost one-tenth of the state! The quickest way up is the...

To get from Albuquerque to Santa Fe, don't take I-25 North--it's busy and sterile. Drive east on I-40 to the backside of the Sandía Mountains, get off on exit 175, and head north on Highway 14, also known as "The Turquoise Trail." You'll wind...

7600 Jefferson St NE #21, Albuquerque, NM 87109, USA
Albuquerque isn't just the town you (and I) drove through on Route 66 over the years. And, its not just the town you fly to just to drive to Santa Fe. Restaurants like Torinos at Home are sprouting up both within the city, and along the I-35...

17 Santuario Dr # A, Chimayo, NM 87522, USA
A little family-owned store that's been around since the 1920's, the El Potrero Trading Post in Chimayó offers provisions both 'spiritual' and 'temporal'--Catholic and Zuni carvings, popsicles and chile peppers... Get here by taking the "high...

15 Santuario Dr, Chimayo, NM 87522, USA
The grounds that lead up to this small chapel are festooned with rosaries, small crosses, offerings, all made before entering the church and small ante-room to the left of the nave, where two toy trowels sat in a dirt hole, the better to scoop a...
