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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bradbury Science Museum and Museum of Indian Arts & Culture. San Miguel Chapel and Nedra Matteucci Galleries are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Santa Fe (El Rancho de las Golondrinas, New Mexico Museum of Art, & more), Puye Cliff Dwellings (in Espanola) and Los Alamos Historical Museum (in Los Alamos). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of El Santuario de Chimayo Historic Site, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at San Felipe de Neri Church, explore the world behind art at Albuquerque Museum Gift Shop, and pick up a one of a kind souvenir at Tinkertown Museum.

To see where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Albuquerque holiday planner.

In September, daily temperatures in Albuquerque can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
