Route 66

Historic neon signs still glow on old Route 66 through Albuquerque, which is now Central Avenue. Alongside the vintage signs, you'll see new versions put up by businesses that are continuing the aesthetic traditions of old Route 66, adorning their shops with bright, buzzing neon. The famous Route 66 continues to guide visitors through Albuquerque, from the volcanoes on the city's far west side past the Rio Grande Botanical Garden and the Albuquerque Aquarium, through historic Old Town and the Downtown business district, and continuing eastward through the University of New Mexico and the trendy Nob Hill area, where you'll find many of the city's best restaurants, distinctive shops and boutiques.  Take the Route 66 tour!
