The 15 Most Instagrammable Spots In Albuquerque, New Mexico

Mountains, museums and those oh-so-delicious tacos. 📸

Albuquerque’s roots run deep. The area was home to Native Americans for thousands of years before the city’s founding in 1706, and tribes still inhabit the surrounding area today, infusing New Mexico’s largest city with a historic culture all its own. 

HuffPost is hitting the road this fall to interview people about their hopes, dreams, fears ― and what it means to be American today.

ABQ, as it’s sometimes called, is surrounded by icons: the Rio Grande to the westSandia Mountains to the northeast and Route 66 leading right into town. Come for the city’s proximity to rugged outdoor activities and stay for its top-notch museums, innovative breweries and mouthwatering food.

Of course, Albuquerque’s desert location and historic flair lend themselves to incredible photos. We toured the city via Instagram for the best places to photograph on your visit.
