Guide is a must-have resource for visitors and locals alike


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – (Feb. 20, 2019) – Visit Albuquerque has released the 2019 Official Albuquerque Visitors Guide. Within its 80 full-size and colorful pages, the guide showcases the wide variety of all there is for visitors and locals to see and do throughout the city.


“We are thrilled to release the 2019 Official Albuquerque Visitors Guide, which is the go-to resource for those looking to visit Albuquerque and also locals that call our beautiful city home,” said Tania Armenta, President & CEO of Visit Albuquerque. “We were proud to partner with a local publisher and local writers to produce a guide packed with one-of-a-kind experiences, events and photos of the Albuquerque area that offers travelers—and locals—a change of perspective.”


This year, Visit Albuquerque collaborated with local publisher E-Squared on the creation of the guide, refreshing the design and increasing the size to resemble a magazine-like feel, with the editorial within following suit through the talents of the local writing community. The eye-catching cover depicts two dancers in the midst of an impassioned flamenco performance and their audience enjoying the entire experience at Tablao Flamenco, located inside of Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town. The cover also invites readers to flip through the pages to explore Albuquerque’s culture and outdoor activities, or get a taste of its many vibrant culinary offerings.


Highlighted this year are locals’ recommendations for what to do, sights to see and where to dine in the Duke City. Many travelers now want to experience the destinations they visit as if they were a local, and visitors can get more of these recommendations through Visit Albuquerque’s digital Locals’ Guide, released late last year.


Also featured in this year’s visitors guide are the city’s many distinct neighborhoods in a spread titled “Burque by Block,” which points out “What’s New” and “Tried and True” in each area. Readers will also get a feel for Albuquerque’s unique cultural landscape with information detailing how Spanish and Native American influences—among others—are celebrated at annual events, cultural centers, and other spaces around the city.


More than 250,000 guides are printed each year and are distributed via mail and through local businesses and lodging establishments, as well as from our two permanent and multiple satellite information centers.


Plan your trip to Albuquerque by requesting a free 2019 Visitors Guide. Locally, guides can be picked up at either the Old Town Information Center in Plaza Don Luis or the Sunport Information Center (near baggage claim), as well as at many Visit Albuquerque partner businesses throughout the city.
