Local author publishes locally driven bucket list


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Albuquerque may be (well deservedly) known for Route 66, Breaking Bad, and its famous green chile. But there’s much more to know-and love-about our lively Southwestern 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 100 Things to Do in Albuquerque Before You Die be your guide. The book celebrates the top ways to (re)discover the city-from a trip 4,000 feet up an aerial tramway to a public art walk. For example, the new “Only in Albuquerque” exhibit opened at the Albuquerque Museum in March. It’s a brand new permanent history exhibit. Plus, there are several free days to visit the museum.

Of course, no Duke City exploration is complete without getting outdoors-and rewarding yourself with a delicious meal afterwards. This guide includes places to hike, bike, and paddle, and where to dine on dishes prepared by the city’s top chefs. Before you head out on your next adventure, check out this list to see what makes Albuquerque a world unto itself.

The book is organized by interest area (examples: music, food, the outdoors), as well as by season. So those looking to find things to do/see over the summer have an easy reference.

Ashley will have a book signing at Page 1 Books, Thursday, May 21, at 6:30 p.m. Those who attend the event will get at least one more thing to see/do in the city.
