Boys trip in Albuquerque

Another fun thing is that Albuquerque does have a lot of neat restaurants and biking paths too

Every year my friends and I do a boys trip. We try to change where we go and not go too far from home. Since all of us are married and have kids, we don’t want to do the big party scene and nightlife anymore. The boy’s trip still needs to be fun though. This year we are going to Albuquerque, New Mexico and I think it will be a great time. One thing the city has to offer is golf. There is Twin Warriors Golf Club and Paa-Ko Ridge Golf Club. Those two places are considered the best but Albuquerque has over 14 courses to choose from. With the local weather always being mild too, there isn’t a worry over cold and rain making it horrible. Another perk of Albuquerque is that cannabis is legal too. The boys and I live in a state where you can only get medical marijuana if you fill out the paperwork and get money. The guys have all talked about how cool it will be to just walk into a dispensary and pick up some legal weed. I do think one night we will all get super baked on cannabis flower, oil and edibles. That will be our wild night that we don’t tell the wives about. Another fun thing is that Albuquerque does have a lot of neat restaurants and biking paths too. There just seems to be a lot to do that is fun but relaxing. It will be cool trying the Mexican food and local dishes. I really like spicy food too.

Honeymoon turned out okay

I got married right in the height of COVID and had to book a honeymoon. I wanted to go overseas to a European destination. Those places did not allow travelers from the United States. If the country did, all the testing and paperwork requirements were very scary. The last thing I wanted to do was worry about obtaining a negative COVID test and possibly not be allowed to come home. My fiance and I then came to the sad conclusion that we had to do a local honeymoon destination. At first I wasn’t even excited to start researching honeymoon locations. Then I quickly realized that you can have a good honeymoon within the United States. I actually booked us for almost a week in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I was worried that we would run out of things to do. After a bit of research, I found that is not possible. I even had us switch hotels mid trip because even the places to stay were cool. There is a hotel with a rooftop bar that overlooks the city. There is one that is a high end resort with a giant spa. The one hotel I ended up booking had live music Thursday through Saturday. They either had jazz or latin music playing right at our hotel. It was really fun getting a drink and listening. Another fun thing we did was visit the cannabis dispensaries that were right in town. We could get a spa treatment and then pick up some legal weed. It was a really good trip after all.

There is more to do in my area

I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico and most people don’t know much about my area.

They think hot weather and Mexican food most likely.

While that is true, there is so much more my state and city have to offer. Have you ever looked at the biking and hiking routes Albuquerque has to offer? It is very easy to book an athletic trip by going here. There is also an Old Town showing off local arts and crafts. There are museums, ghost tours and ABQ BioPark. Another thing to do in Albuquerque, New Mexico is experience theater at its best. There is KiMo theater that is a historic site that caters to local and national acts. You can see music groups, big concerts, speakers and even watch movies in this cute little theater. There is the Albuquerque Theater Guild that spans almost 30 different theaters like Albuquerque Little Theater, Tricklock Company and Musical Theater Southwest. They all offer different experiences in very unique venues. Do you just want to have a bucket of popcorn sprinkled in red chili powder? There is a theater called Guild Cinema that offers showings of national and local independent films. It is a very cool theater and you see some interesting movies. Another perk to my area is that there are legal cannabis dispensaries too. Not every state can boost having legal weed shops on the corner. You can grab some cannabis oil, flowers or an edible without having a medical marijuana card. It is pretty sweet, not going to lie. Who wouldn’t want to come to my area?

A kid friendly trip

Every year I try to take the kids on a trip.

I think it is a good idea to show the kids other locations than where we live.

I also want them to get to know other parts of the country. It is appalling to me when someone can’t name all fifty states. We live in this country and yet don’t know it. It is my goal that my children will be familiar with each area. I also like the idea of them coming back to school in the fall and being able to share that they have gone places. I am not rolling in money though and I have three kids that I pack up. I have to be careful and pick cities that aren’t too expensive. I also need to pick a city that caters to children. What is the point of taking them to a city with nightlife and great bars? The most recent trip I chose was one of the better ones. I decided to take the kids to New Mexico for a week this summer. We went to Albuquerque and just loved it. I took the kids to ABQ BioPark. The children liked going to the local zoo there and seeing all the animals the best probably. There was also a botanical garden, aquarium and Tingly beach too. That took just about the entire trip. I did demand a few hours in Old Town so I could look at the local arts and crafts. The kids didn’t seem to really enjoy it but there were plenty of food options for them. In Albuquerque there are lots of cafes with great little pastries that are all unique.

It is a food trip for me

I also found the Golden Crown Panaderia has all sorts of breads and pastries

I am a foodie. When I go on a trip, I research the cute little restaurants for hours. It is important to me to have a fine hotel and enjoyable places to eat. If I can find a little cafe with bread, pastries and cocoa, I am going to go there. My ideal getaway would be to just walk around shopping, eating and having a hot beverage. I wouldn’t mind seeing some pretty landscapes and getting pampered in the hotel spa. My fiance is an active lady. She loves biking, running and going on long hikes. On a getaway she wants to do stuff and see the sights. She is down with going to a museum, taking a tour or going on a long bike ride… For me, that doesn’t sound all that great. I have to be truly careful when planning a trip that isn’t totally one sided. Thankfully I found a good trip location that will cater to us both. Albuquerque, New Mexico has everything her and I could possibly want. I found some pretty hiking and biking trails. I also found a hotel that is actually swanky, but has a running path for my fiance. She can run and see the sights while I get massaged at the hotel spa. I even found that there are tons of unique restaurants within walking distance with great cuisine. It is in New Mexico so evidently there are tons of Mexican venues to eat. I also found the Golden Crown Panaderia has all sorts of breads and pastries. One bread is an orange-chile bread that I am dying to try. I think I need to take our fiance out to that place.

Cannabis and wine, what more could I want?

My partner is a big wine consumer.

I wanted to take her on a trip where she could do some wine drinking, but I would have something to do as well.

I wanted to stay in the US as well. I looked around at the different states trying to find the one that would toil for both of us. I then landed in New Mexico because the landscapes were just great. Then I started finding that there are a lot of different wineries and wine tasting events there. Secondly, New Mexico has legal weed for sale. I found lots of different cannabis dispensaries, cannabis cafes and events. I am a big time marijuana lover. I adore smoking, trying an edible and perusing the different topicals. I found that Albuquerque, New Mexico has a vast selection of wineries and cannabis dispensaries. The Casa Rondeña was one of the venues that stood out to me. The vineyards were giant and the winery was large as well. The actual venue looked beautiful with all the plants, flowers and vines. There also is a wine shop and wine tasting room. My plan is to take our partner to the Case Rondeña and let her tour the winery, taste some unique wines and spend hours while she shops around. The next afternoon will be all for me. I want to sit in a vape lounge, dab bar and try all sorts of modern cannabis products. I guess we will both like each other’s events. There are other things to do in New Mexico as well. There are all sorts of museums and biking trails.

All the Mexican joints here are great

I like Mexican food the best. You just can’t go wrong with it. As a vegetarian, it is the one of the only dishes that effortlessly caters to my diet. With most cuisines, they are going to sneak meat in their dishes. Mexican food utilizes peppers and onions which are some of my number one vegetables. I adore spicy food. The more hot sauce the better, so quesadillas, tacos, burritos, fajitas, you name it, I will have it. There were a lot of reasons I wanted to go to New Mexico. One reason is I wanted to work at a cannabis dispensary and there are lots of them there. The local cannabis shops are high end venues that tailor to a broad range of customers. Tourists flock to Albuquerque identifiably to experience recreational weed. I also loved that Albuquerque had hiking trails, big bars and the best restaurants around. When I started looking at the local restaurants and seeing all the Mexican food, I was so interested. There are so many venues that serve Mexican dishes. They don’t just simply take beans and cheese and then wrap in a flour wrap. They each have their own special sauce, chili and salsa. The first thing I did when I moved to Albuquerque was start eating out at all the local Mexican hot spots. I now have a venue that I like the salsa the best and a venue that I like the tacos the best. I am always down when someone wants to eat out. I am quick to say a Mexican joint because who doesn’t want to get drunk on margaritas?

Turned out to be a baseball team

My best friend Lindsay and I recently went on a quick jot to Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The two of us wanted anywhere that actually had everything.

In Albuquerque there are hiking trails, cute hotels, fun bars, cannabis dispensaries and all sorts of shops. Basically anything you want, this little area has it. Lindsay asked me if I wanted to see the Albuquerque Isotopes while we were there. I didn’t even look up what it was. An isotope is a math thing, I remembered that from school. I figured she wanted to do some boring math museum thing and told her I could do it. I didn’t realize that it was actually the name of the local baseball team. I had never been to a baseball match in my entire life. It was actually kind of cool seeing the locals lose it over a game. Lindsay and I tried the Isotope’s Slammin’ Amber which was a local beer that most people were drinking at the game. I got some nuts and Lindsay got pretzels. The two of us watched the game where Lindsay and I had no clue on the rules and the players names. It was still fun watching something most people lose their hats over stuff. It also was neat to say I had been to a baseball game. The local team was winning which was doubly fun as well. My friend and I got a bit tipsy that night and both agreed it was the best night of the whole trip. I might even go to another baseball game in an odd state. It was such a good time.

I can bike to the dispensary easy

One hiking trail I love to bike on is Bear Canyon, don’t get this confused with AZ, I am talking about New Mexico.

I am actually into biking. I started out just buying an easy bike to save on gas. In Albuquerque, it is not like there is lots of traffic and people to jump around. I wanted to bike to stay healthy and also get to local bars and shops easier. I like jumping on our bike and going over the local cannabis dispensaries. A lot of the cannabis shops don’t have the best parking. With our bike I can just set it up to a tree and walk right into the shop. I can pick up a few edibles, different flower and a modern vape if I want. I pile them in our bike bin and call it a day. I have expanded our biking quite a bit. The bike that I visit cannabis shops is our fun bike. This bike has larger tires, a basket and is a pretty pink color. If I want to get extreme and actually bike in the dirt and along trails, I use our mountain bike. My work out bike has little tires, tons of odd gears, a water bottle mount and is bright red. One hiking trail I love to bike on is Bear Canyon, don’t get this confused with AZ, I am talking about New Mexico. I can bike a truly long haul on all sorts of terrain when I do the open loop of Bear Canyon. It is such a fine workout for myself and others and I am outside in the sun. I love that I can see local people and tourists alike walking around. I like that I can just stop and enjoy nature mid-work-out if I want to.

We have a community program as well

Most people come to New Mexico looking for recreational marijuana

I am a big supporter of the OffCenter Community Arts Project. Here in Albuquerque the people I was with and I have a nonprofit center where local artists can be on their own. You have access to a studio space where you can paint in peace. Anyone can have a spot in the studio. Art is a truly wide and loose term too; People who paint, sew, make jewelry and play music are all at the studio space. I adore the vibe there and the mood. I like that I can set up our easel, bring our paints and not be talked to. If I want to talk to local artists like myself, it is always fine. I have made quite a few friends through Off Center. I am actually big in acquiring money to keep the venue going. Also, I do give a painting class every Wednesday at 3 pm and all the currency goes back into the center. A lot of the local artists will be doing crafts classes, crafts, rock n roll lessons, you name it. It is important to keep our community ahead. Not only is encouraging art a fine thing, however having a safe space for kids. There are kids that go to Off Center that might not have the best home, but here at the studio, they feel safe. Off Center also has been known to draw in tourists and help us raise money. Most people come to New Mexico looking for recreational marijuana. We have tons of shops here. However, travelers soon find our state has a lot more to offer.
