New Mexico Cashes in on ‘Breaking Bad’

 

The series finale of AMC’s “Breaking Bad” aired Sunday, but fans of the show can still get their fix with a range of themed offerings in New Mexico.

The show filmed there for five seasons and during that time has inspired a profusion of themed tours, hotel packages, food, drink and souvenirs.

"New Mexico became an important character in the story, as well as a second home to the 'Breaking Bad' cast," says Monique Jacobson, secretary of tourism, New Mexico. "Here fans of the show can check out iconic shooting locations and experience everything that made the cast fall in love with New Mexico–its natural beauty, food, culture, history, and friendly people."

Among the offerings available are location tours from the Albuquerque Trolley Company, hotel packages at the Hotel Albuquerque and Nativo Lodge, a Breaking Bad-themed Blue Sky donut at Rebel Donut, blue rock candy at Old Town's The Candy Lady (the same candy was supplied as props to the show), blue Bathing Bad bath salts from Great Face & Body and Walt's White Lie and Heisenberg's Dark Ale beers from Marble Brewery.

To help fans plan their own Breaking Bad trip, the New Mexico tourism department has set up a special website at NewMexico.org/filmtrails.
