Fun trip down memory lane and lots to see. Many shops, restaurants and bars, especially towards downtown.
Located near UNM, Route 66 is a great diner in the truest sense (well, minus the railcar atmosphere of many east coast diners). Great food and an amazing staff. Be sure to try the chicken fried steak and one of their tasty milk shakes!!
