Start off your visit on the 18th (Thu): stroll through Boca Negra Canyon, then take in the spiritual surroundings of San Felipe de Neri Church, then take a stroll through Albuquerque Old Town, and finally get a taste of local nightlife at History and Ghost Tours of Old Town. On the 19th (Fri), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: trek along La Luz Trail, then take in the dramatic natural features at Petroglyph National Monument, then do a tasting at Casa Rondena Winery, and finally try to win big at Sandia Resort & Casino.
