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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Pecos National Historical Park and El Malpais National Monument. Escape the urban bustle at Valles Caldera National Preserve and Hyde Memorial State Park. Explore Albuquerque's surroundings by going to El Santuario de Chimayo Historic Site (in Chimayo), Santa Fe (Museum of Indian Arts & Culture, Harrell House of Natural Oddities, & more) and Los Alamos (Tsankawi prehistoic site - bandelier national monument & Bradbury Science Museum). There's lots more to do: delve into the distant past at Puye Cliff Dwellings, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, explore the engaging exhibits at Explora Science Center and Children's Museum of Albuquerque, and pause for some photo ops at Coronado Historic Site.

For more things to do, photos, maps, and other tourist information, read Albuquerque itinerary planner.

In September in Albuquerque, expect temperatures between 83°F during the day and 60°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
