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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Sky City Cultural Center & Haak'u Museum and San Miguel Chapel. Get some historical perspective at San Felipe de Neri Church and El Santuario de Chimayo. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Albuquerque: Puye Cliff Dwellings (in Espanola), Santa Fe (The Harrell House Bug Museum, El Nicho, &more) and Pecos National Historical Park (in Pecos). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at American International Rattlesnake Museum, pick up a one of a kind souvenir at Tinkertown Museum, explore the engaging exhibits at Explora Science Center and Children's Museum of Albuquerque, and admire the masterpieces at Albuquerque Museum.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Albuquerque driving holiday planner.
