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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Santa Fe (Meow Wolf, Canyon Road, &more). The adventure continues: appreciate the extensive heritage of Albuquerque Old Town, see the interesting displays at New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society, get curious at The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, and contemplate the long history of Petroglyph National Monument.

For reviews, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Albuquerque road trip planning tool.
