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.
On the 20th (Fri), enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour and then have fun and explore at Explora Science Center and Children's Museum of Albuquerque.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Albuquerque online tour itinerary builder .

Los Angeles to Albuquerque is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Los Angeles to Albuquerque due to the time zone difference. Expect somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Los Angeles in July: highs in Albuquerque hover around 91°F, while lows dip to 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) early enough to drive to Santa Fe.

Many residents have shunned fast-paced city living for Taos's laid-back vibe and blend of Spanish, Native American, and Anglo cultures.
Start off your visit on the 23rd (Mon): don't miss a visit to Taos Plaza, don't miss a visit to Taos Pueblo, then explore the world behind art at Millicent Rogers Museum, and finally take in the views from Rio Grande Gorge Bridge.

Find out how to plan Taos trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

You can drive from Santa Fe to Taos in 2 hours. Another option is to take a bus. In July, Taos is a bit cooler than Santa Fe - with highs of 83°F and lows of 52°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
