Albuquerque

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.
Explore Albuquerque's surroundings by going to Santa Fe (Canyon Road, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, &more). There's lots more to do: enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour, see the interesting displays at Anderson-Abruzzo International Balloon Museum, admire the striking features of Spaceship House, and don't miss a visit to New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society.
