LOUIS, MO—Reedy Press is pleased to announce the release of their newest guidebook, ‘100 Things to Do in Albuquerque Before You Die’, 3rd Edition by Ashley M. Biggers.

Albuquerque may be known for Route 66 and its famous green chili, but there’s much more to know—and love—about this lively city. Whether you’re a native Albuquerquean looking to mark another local experience off your “bucket list” or an out-of-towner in search of a few vacation ideas, let this third edition of 100 Things to Do in Albuquerque Before You Die be your guide.

The book celebrates the top ways to discover the city from a public art walk to must-sip margaritas. No Duke City exploration is complete without getting outdoors, such as hiking among petroglyphs and soaking in hot springs.

Eating is a competitive sport in the Duke City, so why not try a soda fountain–turned–New Mexican food restaurant or a bike-in-only breakfast spot? Cheer for New Mexico United, discover a secret gallery, shop at a restored 1930s motor lodge, ride a stucco trolley, and more. Before you head out on your next adventure, check out this revised list featuring twenty-five new destinations to see what makes Albuquerque a world unto itself.

Albuquerque native and local journalist Biggers is your source for making the most of your time. This book leads you to marquee attractions and provides insider tips and themed itineraries for enjoying the “must sees” in this eclectic city. There should never be a reason to say, “There’s nothing to do!”

100 Things to Do in Albuquerque Before You Die’ is available wherever books are sold.
