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 some historical perspective at Bandelier National Monument and Albuquerque Old Town. Do some cultural sightseeing at Museum of International Folk Art and American International Rattlesnake Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Albuquerque: Meow Wolf (in Santa Fe) and Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument (in Cochiti Pueblo). There's still lots to do: get a new perspective on nature at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour, and get curious at Explora Science Center and Children's Museum of Albuquerque.

For photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read our Albuquerque trip itinerary builder website .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 49°F, and evening lows to 28°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
