Introducing Acoma Pueblo
The modern Indian reservation of Acoma Pueblo straddles the I-40 interstate 20 miles east of Grants and 60 miles west of Albuquerque. As well as three separate small communities here – Acomita, Anzac and McCartys – you’ll no doubt spot the Sky City Casino beside the interstate, which offers 132 motel-style rooms, plus live entertainment. Dining options include an all-you-can-eat buffet ($8) that’s a real bargain so long as you resist the urge to gamble as well.
The compelling reason to visit Acoma, however, is to see the extraordinary ancient Pueblo, 13 miles south of the interstate, and known as ‘Sky City.’
