It’s no secret that we here at the Alibi love life in Albuquerque. But sometimes it’s nice to get out of town—to escape the late summer heat, to visit our distant neighbors or to chase some outdoor activities for a change. As a way of celebrating all the great places New Mexico has to offer, we asked our well-informed readers to share their favorite destinations outside of Albuquerque. Here, then, is the “Day Tripper” guide to New Mexico, featuring our readers’ picks for great places to eat, stay and visit all over the Land of Enchantment. This is just a sampler of the fine cities across our state, of course. Pick up future issues of the Alibi, in which “Day Tripper” becomes a regular column where we (and our readers) tell you where to go. So what are we waiting for? Let’s hit the road!
