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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Puye Cliff Dwellings and San Miguel Chapel. Escape the urban bustle at Pecos National Historical Park and Cibola National Forest. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Albuquerque: Sky City Cultural Center & Haak'u Museum (in Pueblo of Acoma), El Santuario de Chimayo (in Chimayo) and Santa Fe (The Harrell House Bug Museum, El Nicho, & more). There's much more to do: engage your brain at Explora Science Center and Children's Museum of Albuquerque, examine the collection at American International Rattlesnake Museum, learn about winemaking at Casa Rondena Winery, and take an in-depth tour of Anderson-Abruzzo International Balloon Museum.
