There are a variety of things to do in Albuquerque.
Whether you're visiting one of our 14 beautiful golf
courses, taking a hot-air balloon flight
over the scenic Rio Grande Valley,
in the Sandia Mountains, hiking
volcanoes, horseback riding along the river or strolling through
, you'll find Albuquerque offers a real breath of fresh air.
Don't miss the stunning views of the city from Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway
, as it slowly climbs the 10,378-foot peak of the mountains that form Albuquerque's eastern border.
Prefer high heels to hiking boots? There are lots of indoor Albuquerque tourism opportunities as well. Albuquerque, the largest city in New Mexico, is packed with activities, cultural attractions and distinctive sightseeing opportunities.
Start your Albuquerque experience with a visit to the National Hispanic
Cultural Center, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center or one of our 19 museums and immerse yourself in art, culture, cuisine and cultural performances. There is so much to do, you may need to
add an extra day to your visit!
Before coming to Albuquerque, visitors should be aware of the city’s high
elevation of over 5,000 feet. When visiting Albuquerque, it may take
your body a couple of days to adjust to the high altitude. At this
elevation the air is thinner and you may become tired faster during
physical activity. Albuquerque’s high desert climate also causes people
to dehydrate faster. It is important to drink a lot of water to keep
your body hydrated; this is the easiest way to avoid altitude sickness.
If you plan on visiting any of our excellent restaurants
or bars while
in town, you should be aware that alcohol may affect your body faster at
higher elevations as well. Also, sunscreen is vital while vacationing in
Albuquerque. Whether it is sunny or cloudy, summer or winter, the UV
rays are stronger at higher altitudes. Visitors should wear a high SPF
sunscreen at all times to avoid sunburn and wear sunglasses to protect
