Albuquerque, New Mexico is a city that punches above its weight. At just over a half-million residents, Albuquerque is only the 32nd most-populous city in the United States, but the city’s idiosyncratic local cuisine, its hip local bars and eclectic music scene, its world-class museums and world-renowned events, and perhaps most importantly, its spectacular desert vistas, all put Albuquerque on par with cities twice its size. For that reason, SpareFoot went out in search of the best of the best in this unique, fascinating city.
