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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Albuquerque: Santa Fe (Santa Fe Plaza, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, & more) and Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument (in Cochiti Pueblo). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Albuquerque Old Town, take an in-depth tour of Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, contemplate the long history of Petroglyph National Monument, and examine the collection at Anderson-Abruzzo International Balloon Museum.
