Hi everyone, in a few days I'll be passing through your state from Texas to Arizona. I'll be coming in on 40 from Texas and will be spending the night in Albuquerque. Are there any noteworthy places I should stop to see/eat at? What about sleeping accommodations and places to stay out of? I've also heard that gas stations aren't frequent at some points along the way, how much truth is there to this? I'll be on a Harley with a 3.3 gallon tank and have no saddle bags to store a gas can. Thanks.
Ok I'll try. If you are a biker you may want to stay around Rio Grande Blvd and I 40. I'm not a biker but Neds on the Rio Grand caters to you guys and I hear they have some pretty good live music. There are a couple of decent looking motels a block away. Old town itself is OK. Touristy. There is a 400 year old church there so it's al least authentic. Old town is on Rio Grande and Central which is very close to Neds.
The Sandia Peak Tramway is pretty cool. It will take you from about 6000 feet elevation at its base to 10,678 feet at the crest of Sandia mountain. There is a bar/restaurant at the top. Last time I rode the tram it was a$ 12.00 round trip. I think the eats at the to are kinda pricey.
There are several casinos around town which are run by the local Native Population. The Hard Rock Casino is just a few miles south on I 25 and has Harley Davidson only parking spaces
If you are going to be here on the night of December 2 our hometown girl Holly Holm who is the current IWBA welterweight champ is gonna beat the snot outta some French chick who shoulda stayed home. This will take place at Rt. 66 casino I believe.
Calibers is on paseo Del Norte east of I 25. There is an indoor pistol range and I think they'll let you shoot 223 in there a s well. A little pricey but good for a one time trip. I think their lanes are like 17 bucks.
We have a pretty good natural history museum and the art museum is sometimes very good depending on the Exibit They are both in old town.
Stay safe on the road and have a good trip.
