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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Explora Science Center and Children's Museum of Albuquerque and A Park Above. Explore Albuquerque's surroundings by going to Los Alamos (Bradbury Science Museum & Bandelier National Monument), Santa Fe (Museum of International Folk Art, Santa Fe Cathedral Park and Monument, &more) and Cochiti Pueblo (Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument & Canyon Trail). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Albuquerque Old Town, make a trip to New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Pecos National Historical Park, and take in the awesome beauty at Jemez Mountains.

For traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Albuquerque online travel route planner.
