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.
Get out of town with these interesting Albuquerque side-trips: Cochiti Pueblo (Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument & Canyon Trail). Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Albuquerque Old Town, get a new perspective on nature at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, examine the collection at New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society, and take in the spiritual surroundings of San Felipe de Neri Church.
