Exploring the Land of Enchantment
Albuquerque is a wonderful gateway to the American Southwest and a fascinating destination on its own. The city offers 19 museums, two cultural centers, great shopping, and countless restaurants where you can sample New Mexico’s famous chili dishes. The Albuquerque Visitors and Convention Bureau is a great resource for places to see and things to do.
If urban adventures aren’t your cup of tea, the area around Albuquerque offers many opportunities for exploration, from Native American pueblos to the Sandia Mountains, where you can hike or mountain bike. You can even take a hot air balloon flight over the Rio Grande Valley!
Whatever you choose to do, make sure to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water. Albuquerque’s elevation is over 5,000 feet, and it could take your body a few days to get acclimated. In addition, UV rays are stronger at higher altitudes, so use plenty of sunscreen!
