Old Town Alburquerque
Take a walk through history around Albuquerque's original central plaza, the serene village that has been the focal point of community life since 1706. You can explore the historic buildings, museums, restaurants and bars. Wrought iron and adobe bancos (benches) beckon you to rest in the shade and watch people stroll. Unique items from around the world, as well as those distinctively Southwestern, can be found in more than 100 shops and boutiques.
Old town in abq is a boring dump. I don't think you should visit this place. I went there recently and some of the restaurants have their dumpsters right next to the door. I lost my appetite. There's also no place to park.
There was nothing to dislike about this beautiful old town. The Cathedral was magnificent. The shops keep you busy and dreaming for hours. The food is to die for especially at Michaels. Its even more fabulous when they have the Indian Market going on and you meet people from all over the world. You can get lost in OLD TOWN.
Can't wait to return. The pavillion is great when there is some sort of activity going on and you can always find something to do. Just not boring at all.
I walked thru Old Towne with my small dog and was pleasantly surprised when shop owners invited us in! Even the Bake Shop said to "Bring her in!", but we did eat outside. If you like Southwest/Native American design and/or jewelery, this is an awesome place to hit! More great stuff with good prices at the Cultural center!
I didn't even have trouble finding a free parking spot on Sunday!
Whatch carefully or you will buy something made in India or China. But shop personel will show you native made material if you ask. Better yet buy from some of the crafts people in the square outside the stores. Watch for state issued ID's.
I've been on many ghost tours in the U.S. and this one is one of the best. The tour was two hours long and included interesting historical information as well as fanscinating ghost stories. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and are ghost hunters as well.
The tour ends with pictures and video of "ghostly" activity, making a really creepy ending. You walk away with a benefit of a doubt. Maybe ghosts do exist. Highly recommended tour!
When you walk through the doors of this Old Town museum and shop, you may find yourself warily glancing behind
the door. But there are no snakes slithering about the store, their crawl space is in the back room ...
