AABA has promoted Albuquerque's galleries and ARTScrawl events since 1990. Old Town to the west was settled in 1706 and is the heart of our multicultural personality. East along Route 66 in Downtown and Nob Hill you will find theaters, public art, neon and more galleries. The Heights is gateway to Sandia Crest at 10,678 feet and a panoramic view of the city, but you need to experience our fine restaurants, brewpubs and diverse art galleries close up. Seven miles to the east, at the historic Village of Tijeras, turn north on Highway 14 to the Turquoise Trail Scenic Byway.
