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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Valles Caldera National Preserve and Bradbury Science Museum. Step off the beaten path and head to Pecos National Historic Park and Jemez Hot Springs: Home of The Giggling Springs. Change things up with these side-trips from Albuquerque: Puye Cliff Dwellings (in Espanola) and Santa Fe (San Miguel Chapel, El Rancho de las Golondrinas, & more). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of San Felipe de Neri Church, find something for the whole family at Cliff's Amusement Park, and admire the masterpieces at Albuquerque Museum Gift Shop.
