Explore the most interesting, scenic, and historic places in Albuquerque, New Mexico, via 30 self-guided walking tours.

Basking in an average of 310 days of sunshine per year, Albuquerque is a welcoming environment that offers walkable landscapes ranging from its wilderness edge to its industrial core. Yet, given Burque’s history and massive sprawl, navigating it on foot requires some guidance from an expert. That’s where Walking Albuquerque by local author and explorer Stephen Ausherman comes in handy. With 30 routes mapped out in the valley, the heights, and beyond, this first-of-its-kind comprehensive guidebook covers the entire city and surrounding areas.

Whether strolling down neon-bedazzled avenues, promenading through Victorian neighborhoods, exploring volcanic vistas, or wandering the wooded banks of the Rio Grande, each trek is an enlightening excursion into Albuquerque’s deep history and richly diverse culture. You can experience the local art scene, indulge in exotic cuisine, visit sacred places, and enjoy more open space than any other city in America—nearly 3,000 square feet of parkland per person.

Inside you’ll find:

  • 30 self-guided walking tours of the city
  • National landmarks and famous filming locations
  • Hidden treasures that even locals don’t often know about
  • Architecture, trivia, and more

If you’re looking for a quick workout, a full day’s entertainment, or something in between, Walking Albuquerque will get you there. You’ll feel as if you’re being led by your closest friend. So find a route that appeals to you, and walk Albuquerque!
