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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Cochiti Pueblo (Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument & Canyon Trail). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of Albuquerque Old Town, have fun and explore at Explora Science Center and Children's Museum of Albuquerque, admire the masterpieces at Albuquerque Museum, and learn more about the world around you at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.

To find other places to visit, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Albuquerque trip planner.
