Local Attractions


With 310 days of sunshine a year, Albuquerque is the perfect
place to revel in the great outdoors.

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, mountain biking in the Sandia Mountains, hiking among dormant volcanoes, horseback riding along the Rio Grande or strolling through Old Town, 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 10,350 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 special cultural performances.

Year after year, Albuquerque is ranked as a favorite arts destination by American Style magazine. Even if you don't visit any of our many galleries or museums, during your stay you will likely encounter some of the many public art pieces that enliven the city. There is so much to do, you may need to add an extra day to your visit!
