The eye-catching cover features the popular Rail Yards Market, which kicked off in 2014, and is scheduled to run most Sundays from May through November this year. The photo was selected as an example of the hip, happening and innovative momentum in the city. Expanded features this year include pages dedicated to winter sports, unique Albuquerque souvenirs and tips for attending Balloon Fiesta. In addition, the entertainment districts pages now feature local celebrities - UNM men's basketball coach Craig Neal, meteorologist Mark Ronchetti, Miss Albuquerque and Isotopes mascot Orbit - giving their top three things to do in each neighborhood.
"We're pleased to share the updated look and feel of the 2015 Visitors Guide. This guide is packed with unique experiences, events and photos of the Albuquerque area," said Tania Armenta, vice president of marketing for Visit Albuquerque. "We encourage locals to pick up a copy from one of our visitor information centers, to use to make plans for themselves, and when they have friends or family visiting from out of town."
Visitors Guides can be picked up at either the Old Town Information Center in Plaza Don Luis or the Sunport Information Center, as well as at many Visit Albuquerque partner businesses throughout the city. Visitors can request a free copy or view the paperless interactive version online.
