Albuquerque Old Town:

This is one of the main area to shop and eat, but will likely be crowded both weekends. It is also full of history with tons of architecture and sights to take in.

Sandia Peak Tramway

The Sandia Peak Tramway is a must-see destination in Albuquerque. The Sandias form a beautiful backdrop to Albuquerque and the Sandia Peak Tramway is a truly unique way to see the high desert, however, wait times last year during the second weekend exceeded two hours. Factor that in when making itinerary decisions.

Petroglyph National Monument
The hikers out there may enjoy the Petroglyph National Monument. The trails aren’t strenuous, but they’re enjoyable and take hikers around a tour of carved petroglyphs unique to the region.

 

ABQ BioPark:
The biopark is a quiet getaway within the city that’s great for the kids or just a quiet stroll. The highlights are the aquarium and extensive grounds full of a wide range of plants.
