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.
Kick off your visit on the 11th (Sat): surround yourself with nature on New Mexico Jeep Tours. On your second day here, admire the masterpieces at Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, contemplate the long history of Loretto Chapel, then pause for some serene contemplation at The Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, and finally don't miss a visit to Canyon Road.
