Betsy said: “Old Town! You must try the Green Chile Stew… anywhere in Albuquerque!”
Katy said: “Old Town for sure & take the tram up to Sandia Peak.”
Pam said: “Yes, ride tram up Sandia Peak before sunset and stay till after… beautiful to come down after dark with the city all lit up! Haven’t been in several years, but we always ate at the restaurant at the top, High Finance. It is pricey, but was always really good and a neat experience with an amazing view! Oh, now I want to go back! Met and fell in love with my husband in NM!”
Denise said: “That Tram Ride up the mountain is awesome!!!”
Alexis said: “Yes I grew up there and love it… visit the Sandia Tram… eat at Dion’s Pizza and order Green Chile Pizza, or at Blakes Lotaburger and eat a Green Chile Cheeseburger ( if you are going there you need to eat green chile)… old town is fun to visit and if you have time a trip up to Santa Fe is enjoyable… have fun!!”
