Old Town & Sawmill
What Notable Locals Love To Do In Old Town & Sawmill
Campo at Los Poblanos
My family and I love just walking around the Old Town Plaza and taking it all in.
Dust City Opera
"Old Town has a wealth of great shops and eateries, it is hard to pick just a few around the plaza!"
Community Relations & Marketing Manager
The Verdes Foundation
"I live in Downtown Albuquerque, which is just walking distance from Tiguex Park, The Albuquerque Museum of Art & History, and The Natural History Museum. You can literally just walk to all of these great things right from Downtown Albuquerque, or ride your bike straight to the Bosque."
Founder, Rainbow Ryders
"Head to Old Town and get a real taste of Albuquerque and New Mexico's history, with lots of museums and culture there."
Chief Programs Officer
Harwood Art Center
"Sawmill has a lot of restaurants and coffee shops that are coming up. It's kind of that intermediary between Wells Park and Old Town, and a lot of investment is being put into developing that area."
"There's Old Town if you want to bring friends in from out of town and have them walk around the plaza and look at the Native American jewelers and the art galleries that are down there."
Spur Line Supply Co
"Old Town is pretty awesome. It's the site where the original city settlement was, a little over three hundred years ago, in 1706. Now, there's both worlds there, both Native American and Spanish cultures in Old Town. It's been developed over the last three hundred years, and in that neighborhood, you'll find cool things like walkable streets, colorful adobe buildings that now house galleries or souvenir shops. "Sawmill is providing this place where the locals can hang. I'm one of those people where I find myself there because I do have some of my favorite haunts here where we tend to hang out. Sawmill is in that same area too, and it's definitely becoming that area where locals come to hang out.""
Campo at Los Poblanos
"Old Town has a really beautiful plaza with a lot of history behind it. Albuquerque's Old Town is, like, three hundred years old! You can walk around and look at the native artwork."
Pimentel & Sons Guitarmakers
"There are so many museums, shops, and restaurants of all kinds in Old Town. It's a perfect place for any traveler to go after they visit Pimentel Guitars, of course."
My Sweet Basil
"Old Town is where everyone goes when they visit Albuquerque. It's the spot where you can get the old part of Albuquerque, like the churches, the New Mexican restaurants."
"Prismatic Coffee is in the Sawmill area, and there are a ton of new, hip little markets going on in this neighborhood, with little boutiques and local restaurants and things like that. Sawmill is a really great area for a roasting company like ours!"
"Old Town is the oldest part of the city, and it's really unique."
