Desert adventures in Albuquerque

Resting tranquilly along the Rio Grande beside the rosy Sandia Mountains, Albuquerque is the most populated city in New Mexico — though you’d never know it.

This relaxed sprawl of a city is a popular setting for TV shows and movie production, so these days, in addition to historic sites and national parks, you’ll find hip coffee shops, craft breweries, and farm-to-table cafes. Drive breathtaking scenic byways, explore peaks and petroglyphs, and fall under the spell of the land of enchantment.

Albuquerque favorites

Balloons, tramways, and ancient petroglyphs are just a few of the sights in our Albuquerque list of favorites.

Sandia Peak Tramway

Starting in Albuquerque, ride the three-mile tramway up into the Sandia Mountains for an astonishing lookout point over the Rio Grande Valley. Then hike around the peak or dine at a mountain-top restaurant to keep that view in sight.

Petroglyph National Monument

This collection of petroglyphs west of the Rio Grande is between 300 and 25,000 years old. Preserved by lava flow, these drawings from ancient times are still visible, so you can imagine and interpret the lives of New Mexico’s earliest peoples.

International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

If you’re visiting Albuquerque in early October, you can’t miss the world-famous Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. For nine days, the city transforms into an enchanted world of balloon competitions, rodeos, twilight glows, and fireworks under balloon-filled skies.

You have to bring your own car plug for your charger and I never did figure out how to connect my phones Bluetooth, looks like the max number of phones are connected.

Hit the road

While the International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta is Albuquerque’s best-known attraction, there’s plenty to discover outside the city. Albuquerque is surrounded by the colorful natural beauty of New Mexico, and the region abounds with remnants of ancient history like pueblos and cliff dwellings. A haven for artists and archaeologists, it’s the ideal place for any curious person to launch an unforgettable day trip.

Acoma City Sky Pueblo

About 60 miles west of Albuquerque, Acoma Pueblo is the oldest continually-inhabited city in the U.S. Climb to the top of a 400-foot mesa to tour the cliff dwellings, village, and cultural center that preserve the art and history of the indigenous Acoma people.

Santa Fe

Santa Fe, founded as a 1600s Spanish colony, is famous for its adobe buildings, Pueblo style architecture, and artistic community. Just an hour’s drive from Albuquerque, it makes for a charming day trip.

Jemez Springs

The serene village of Jemez Springs dates back to 2,500 BC. Today, it’s a place to unplug and unwind. Offering hot springs, hikes, and history, it also hosts art galleries, outdoor concerts, and ambient restaurants.
