The Turquoise Trail National Scenic Byway is located in the heart of Central New Mexico. Linking Albuquerque to Santa Fe, the trail weaves its way north from Tijeras to the Lone Butte area, ending just south of the "City Different." The trail is renowned for its mountainous landscapes, brilliantly painted skies, and diversity of cultures, all of which are reflected in local theater and dance traditions that are found along this 62-mile route. These arts have been important to Native American, Hispanic, and Anglo cultures. There is also a chapter that highlights the flourishing film industry and the popular entertainments of the Turquoise Trail.
