Would you describe Downtown Albuquerque as “awesome and full of character?”
TripAdvisor would. And it did — naming the Duke City’s Downtown as one of 11 in the nation in its report: “Downtown America: 11 awesome urban districts full of character.”
The travel website company (Nasdaq: TRIP) included some big urban cores among its choice of 11: Los Angeles, Orlando, Tampa Bay, Denver and New Orleans to name a few.
As far as Downtown Albuquerque is concerned, TripAdvisor said: “The arts and entertainment district is on the rise.” And writers noted the Albuquerque Convention Center’s multi-million dollar remodel and the uniqueness of the KiMo Theatre as positives.
The optimistic press is welcome for a corridor that is pushing for revitalization and is in the midst of many new initiatives — including Innovate ABQ, just across the railroad tracks to the east, and the Rail Yards to the south.
