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.
Petroglyph National Monument and Bandelier National Monument will appeal to history buffs. Go for a jaunt from Albuquerque to Pueblo of Acoma to see Sky City Cultural Center & Haak'u Museum about 1h 10 min away.

Start your trip to Albuquerque by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

Dallas to Albuquerque is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Traveling from Dallas to Albuquerque, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference.
