Spend a Day in Our Shops
Visitors looking to spend a day shopping won't have any trouble finding places to go in Albuquerque. There are three large shopping malls in the area - Coronado and Winrock in uptown Albuquerque and Cottonwood Mall in Rio Rancho - featuring national chain stores.
Old Town Albuquerque, centered around Albuquerque's original plaza on the western side of the Rio Grande, features art galleries and an eclectic mix of shops selling authentic New Mexico wares like silver jewelry, pottery, Native American artwork and textiles. Traditions! artist's marketplace, which showcases native artists and also hosts many cultural and music events, is located a half-hour's drive from Albuquerque in the small town of Budaghers.
Antiquers can also find a day's entertainment (and maybe a great bargain too!) in Albuquerque's antique shops, many of which are located along Central Avenue near the University of New Mexico.
