Breaking Bad continues to inspire travel to Albuquerque
Travelers looking for a new experience are choosing Albuquerque for their summer vacation. Film fans from around the world are especially interested in visiting after seeing Albuquerque-shot films such as The Lone Ranger, The Avengers, and the hugely popular AMC show, Breaking Bad.
“Albuquerque itself has become a character in our show. A really important character in our show,” said Bryan Cranston, who plays Walter White, in a recent radio interview. “It gave it a justifiable location. A sound, solid place that not many people have related to. They’ve seen Los Angeles, they’ve seen New York, but they haven’t really seen Albuquerque and New Mexico.”
Businesses in Albuquerque are recognizing this new audience and developing some creative products and experiences inspired by the show appeasing visitors looking for an “on-location” vacation. Many Albuquerque business owners have taken advantage of the show’s popularity to create a variety Breaking Bad visitor offerings from trolley and bike tours of the locations to candies, donuts and bath salts.
