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: Cochiti Pueblo (Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument & Canyon Trail), Jemez Mountains (in Jemez Springs) and Santa Fe (New Mexico History Museum, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, &more). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Albuquerque Old Town, steep yourself in history at Petroglyph National Monument, get a new perspective on nature at New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, and get engrossed in the history at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.

To see maps, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Albuquerque road trip planning app.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Albuquerque. In February, plan for daily highs up to °F, and evening lows to °F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sun) so you can go by car to Taos.

Many residents have shunned fast-paced city living for Taos's laid-back vibe and blend of Spanish, Native American, and Anglo cultures.
