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.
Start off your visit on the 30th (Mon): engage your brain at Explora Science Center and Children's Museum of Albuquerque, explore the striking landscape at Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument, and then have fun at A Park Above. On your second day here, make a trip to Santo Domingo Pueblo and then take in breathtaking views at Bandelier National Monument.

Plan a trip to Albuquerque easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Getting from Carlsbad to Albuquerque by car takes about 4.5 hours. Other options: do a combination of car and flight. In September, daily temperatures in Albuquerque can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 60°F.
