Albuquerque

— 6 nights

Duke City

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 (Santa Fe Plaza, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, &more) and Cochiti Pueblo (Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument & Canyon Trail). And it doesn't end there: soar above the sights with a balloon tour, appreciate the extensive heritage of Albuquerque Old Town, see the interesting displays at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, and have fun and explore at Explora Science Center and Children's Museum of Albuquerque.
