Explore Albuquerque's surroundings by going to Canyon Trail (in Cochiti Pueblo) and Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument (in Mountainair). Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Tingley Beach, learn more about the world around you at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, explore the world behind art at Tinkertown Museum, and pause for some serene contemplation at Capilla de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe.
