Today, we detour into the pop culture phenomenon, Breaking Bad. It just won a slew of Emmy® awards last night, and it was filmed here in my home town of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Back in June, my parents binge-watched the entire five-season series in just a few weeks. For my dad’s 84th birthday, I took Mom and Dad on a private tour of filming sites for the TV show.

During our excursion, I recorded each stop. We were fortunate to meet Fran, the lady who owns the house that became known as Walter and Skyler White’s home, and got a few words with Melissa Bernstein, the executive director of the series. She lives in Albuquerque!

Among the sites you’ll see are:

  • Walt and Skyler’s house
  • Hank and Marie’s house
  • Jesse Pinkman’s house
  • Gus Fring’s house
  • Walter White’s condo
  • The laundry facility where Gus’ meth lab was located
  • The Savoy Bar & Grill and The Grove restaurants
  • The John Robertson Dam
  • Saul Goodman’s offices
  • The A-1/Octopus car wash and the vacuum repair shop
  • The Railyards of Albuquerque
  • Walter White’s memorial marker
