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.
On the 21st (Mon), learn more about the world around you at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, then get to know the fascinating history of Albuquerque Old Town, and then test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

To plan Albuquerque vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

You can take a bus from Santa Fe to Albuquerque in an hour. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a train. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Santa Fe in December since evenings lows in Albuquerque dip to 28°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 22nd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
