Founder, Rainbow Ryders
"Head to the South Valley area, which is a two-hundred-year-old neighborhood with homes that have been in the same families for generations and generations."
Spur Line Supply Co
"The South Valley is one of the older parts of town, and it's where you go to find the best mom and pop eateries, from Chicharronia Don Choche to Burrito Shaw and things like that, which are very much New Mexican. There's also old farmland and greenhouses, just throughout the whole neighborhood you'll find quite a few historic buildings and things like that."
Campo at Los Poblanos
"The South Valley is another deep-rooted cultural space in Albuquerque. The South Valley has really kept itself from being gentrified and all that. The South Valley has got a lot of farmlands and farmers who do most of their work here."
Founder and Head Brewer
La Cumbre Brewing
"I've never been to a place like the South Valley of Albuquerque, and it kind of defines this city for me. Both the South Valley and the North Valley. They're just so completely, stereotypically Albuquerque, in a really good way. A lot of the buildings have been there for hundreds of years, and it's just beautiful."
