Tall shade trees, historic homes,
and spacious parks give the Huning Highland Historic District
a peaceful feel, but this area also lies just minutes from some of Albuquerque's
most active nightlife and entertainment venues. The eclectic mix of old and new homes includes upscale lofts, cozy cottages, and homes with styles ranging from adobe to Queen Anne. Central Avenue runs through the center of the neighborhood for easy commuting by bus or bicycle, and I-25 is close by for easy access to other parts of the city.
Get involved with the active neighborhood association for a chance to take part in community gardens, block parties, holiday events, and more. When you seek a night on the town, head a few minutes down Central to see a concert at Sunshine Theater, which hosts both local and nationally-known bands. Sip authentic espresso or fine wine while enjoying some of the city's best pizza at Farina Pizzeria, or munch on some upscale American dishes at the popular Artichoke Cafe.
