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.

The adventure continues: take a stroll through Albuquerque Old Town, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at San Felipe de Neri Church, get engrossed in the history at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, and stop by Blue Portal.
