The best way to find out what life was like 300 years ago is to buy a 300-year-old man a whiskey and ask him what life was like 300 years ago. Since all tri-centurions live underneath two miles of Greenlandic ice, today's Groupon is your next best bet for uncovering three centuries of Old Town history. For $5, you get one ticket to the 75-minute History, Legends & Lore Walking Tour from Tours of Old Town.

During the tour, certified tour guides steer excited modern-day explorers through the annals of one of North America’s oldest towns. From early American Indians and Spanish conquistadores to dapper gunslingers such as Wyatt Earp, Billy the Kid, and the especially ruthless life-size poster of Han Solo, Old Town’s historically rich timeline can barely be contained by the space-time continuum. Discover Old Town’s original name (spoiler alert: New Town), Albuquerque’s original spelling (spoiler alert: New Town), and the original starting line of North America’s first rocket-propelled Conestoga drag race (spoiler alert: Central Avenue and Rio Grande Boulevard).

Embarking into Albuquerque antiquity every day of the week except Thursday, the mile-long History, Legends & Lore walking tour is educational for tourists and locals alike. Spend more than an hour roaming the area led by the expert teaching and fantastical story telling of the enthusiastic guides. Join the roving group to acquire compelling tales and trivia about New Mexico and Albuquerque while walking off a few calories in the process, and prepare to blissfully age a few hundred years as you delve deep into the yesteryears of Old Town.
