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.

The adventure continues: appreciate the extensive heritage of Albuquerque Old Town, sample the tasty concoctions at Bombs Away Beer Co., see the interesting displays at New Mexico Steam Locomotive and Railroad Historical Society, and get a new perspective on nature at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.
