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.
Family-friendly places like Balloon Rides and Loretto Chapel will thrill your kids. Get out of town with these interesting Albuquerque side-trips: Santa Fe (Canyon Road, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, &more) and Cochiti Pueblo (Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument & Canyon Trail). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Albuquerque Old Town, get a new perspective on nature at New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, get curious at Explora Science Center and Children's Museum of Albuquerque, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Capilla de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe.
