Albuquerque remains one of the state's secret jewels, as its tourist attractions are often overshadowed by the more popular holiday destination of Santa Fe.
Visiting Balloon Rides and Bandelier National Monument will get you outdoors. Popular historic sites such as Albuquerque Old Town and The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi are in your itinerary. Explore Albuquerque's surroundings by going to Jemez Mountains (in Jemez Springs), El Santuario de Chimayo (in Chimayo) and Santa Fe (Loretto Chapel, Santa Fe Plaza, &more). There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape at Petroglyph National Monument, take an in-depth tour of Anderson-Abruzzo International Balloon Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of San Felipe de Neri Church, and see the interesting displays at New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society.

To find ratings, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Albuquerque trip itinerary planning tool.

Indianapolis to Albuquerque is an approximately 7- hour combination of bus and flight. You can also drive; or take a train. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Mountain Standard Time, which is usually a -2 hour difference. When traveling from Indianapolis in October, plan for somewhat warmer days in Albuquerque, with highs around 73°F, while nights are about the same with lows around 48°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
