Albuquerque

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.
Step out of the city life by going to Bandelier National Monument and Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. Venture out of the city with trips to Santa Fe (Santa Fe Honey Salon & Farm Shop, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, & more). There's much more to do: take a memorable tour with Tours, pause for some serene contemplation at Capilla de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe, examine the collection at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, and take in the spiritual surroundings of San Felipe de Neri Church.
