The all-you-need-to-know guide to traveling to Albuquerque with flair.

Sutro Media travel guides are mobile-friendly original content created from the ground up for the on-the-go traveler who wants to tap into quick, condensed and relevant up-to-the-minute information.

Whether your passion is mountains and rivers, green chile and hot-air balloons, whether you're looking for family-friendly or romantic, this travel app will guide you to the stunning views and the most mouth-watering cuisine in the area.

We've condensed the best of Albuquerque and the surrounding mountains and Indian pueblos into 190 top sites, 843 photos with must-see activities. We make it easy for you to make the most of your visit, with plenty of tips for first-timers, as well as handy info for longtime natives.

The app includes day trips to the Turquoise Trail, Sandia Mountains, Acoma Pueblo, Santa Fe Opera and Jemez Springs, along with a complete guide to Albuquerque's premier event, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.

Inspiring and easy-to-navigate features include:
> Photo slideshows for each entry. A taste of the experience to get you psyched.
> Concise, original text by a truly enchanted longtime Albuquerque high-desert dweller.
> A multitude of ways to filter entries by categories such as ABQ Originals (the rich cultural traditions of Native American, Spanish and Anglo culture), Hidden Gems (you'll be so glad we told you), Balloon Fiesta, Historic Route 66, Mountains & Rivers, Family-Friendly, Romantic and more.
> A multitude of ways to sort entries by name, distance, price and neighborhood.
> One-click website and phone interface to buy tickets, read current menus and more.
> Google maps and walking and driving directions for each entry.
> More than 100MB of offline content that you can access anytime without an Internet connection.

> Neighborhood overviews to help you decide how and where to spend your time.
> The ability to share user comments and mark and save favorites.
> Fast browsing.
