Albuquerque

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.
To see maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Albuquerque trip planner.

Milwaukee to Albuquerque is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also fly; or drive; or do a combination of train and bus. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time (CST) to Mountain Standard Time (MST), which is usually a -1 hour difference. When traveling from Milwaukee in December, plan for a bit warmer days in Albuquerque, with highs around 49°F, while nights are about the same with lows around 28°F. You'll set off for Elephant Butte on the 19th (Thu).
