I'm an east coast girl living in a west coast world. I grew up in New England before moving to SoCal for several years. I then lived in NYC or a year before moving to AZ in 2009. I worked in the entertainment industry for many years of my adult life and have a deep love for photography, writing, and traveling around the U.S. as well as to far-flung locations around the world. Travel is my life and writing about it is a dream!
Also known as the Sky City, Acoma Pueblo dates back to around 1100 AD and rests atop a 367-foot sandstone mesa rising out of the desert floor. Located just 60 miles west of Albuquerque, it is considered the oldest inhabited community in North America.
Take a tour to get an idea of the rich culture and history of the Acoma Pueblo Native American Tribe. Purchase goods such as pottery and jewelry made by the Acoma people and you will be taking home a unique souvenir from a place unlike any other, all while supporting the locals. Would you like to visit this Sky City?
