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 explore the less-touristy side of things at San Felipe de Neri Church and El Rancho de las Golondrinas. Kids will appreciate attractions like River Rafting & Tubing and San Miguel Chapel. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Albuquerque: Jemez Springs (Jemez Hot Springs: Home of The Giggling Springs & Valles Caldera National Preserve), Pecos National Historical Park (in Pecos) and Bradbury Science Museum (in Los Alamos). There's lots more to do: delve into the distant past at Puye Cliff Dwellings, find something for the whole family at Cliff's Amusement Park, and explore the world behind art at Albuquerque Museum.
