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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Albuquerque: Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument (in Cochiti Pueblo), Santa Fe (Canyon Road, Loretto Chapel, & more) and Bandelier National Monument (in Los Alamos). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Albuquerque Old Town, don't miss a visit to New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society, get curious at The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, and learn more about the world around you at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.

For reviews, more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Albuquerque planning site .
