Albuquerque is found in the centre of the State of New Mexico, bisected by Route 40 from east to west and Route 25 from north to south. The second largest city in New Mexico, it offers plenty to see and do year-round. Due to its amazing location, outdoor pursuits are one of the biggest lures of the area, with hiking, biking and horseriding some of the most popular choices. From December to March you can also indulge in a spot of skiing or snowboarding, with the Sandia Peak area being the most popular place to enjoy some time enjoying the snow. A year-round attraction is the nearby Petroglyph National Monument, where you can hike and spot the vast array of petroglyphs carved into the volcanic rock by the Native Americans and Spanish 400-700 years ago. If you’re looking for something less outdoorsy, there’s a very popular tour taking in all the places that featured in the hit series ‘Breaking Bad’ and Albuquerque also has a very lively sporting schedule. If you travel during October, you may find Albuquerque’s skies a little busy, as during this time of year they hold their annual International Balloon Fiesta. This world-renowned events means hotels can book up quickly, so definitely something to bear in mind.
Within the city itself, there are plenty of places to wander and enjoy the shopping and dining scene. Old Town is the cultural heart of the city, with museums, galleries, shops and restaurants, and you can also see the beautiful San Felipe de Neri church here, as well as plenty of other examples of architecture created by the early Spanish settlers. Nob Hill is another historic spot in Albuquerque, but this is a little more upmarket with a collection of eclectic shops, boutiques and at night the place comes alive with trendy bars and clubs. Downtown is another hip area, which has been up and coming for a number of years now. Along Central Avenue, Route 66, you’ll find the nightlife, whether it’s a trendy bar, nightclub, theatre or restaurant you’re after, you’ll find it here. For shopping, the Uptown area is where you’ll find the busy Coronado Mall, the biggest in New Mexico, and home to everything from Macy’s and JCPenny to Sephora, Vans and Pandora.
When it comes to food, New Mexico has a cuisine all of its own and you’ll find it everywhere. Not to be confused with Tex-Mex, Mexican or Cal-Mex, New Mexican cuisine has evolved from the combination of Spanish and Native American tastes, with a later influx of American and Mexican additions. This has created a cuisine which shares aspects of many others, but is unique to the area. The most common question you’ll be asked when dining out is ‘red or green?’ which is a request for which colour chile you would like, a staple in New Mexican cuisine. You can also plump for ‘Christmas’ which is both. There are also plenty of other foodie options, including some great Thai and Chinese restaurants, some of which have added a little New Mexico spice to their menus.
Within the city proper you’ll find plenty of luxury hotels, outside the city boundaries you can also find some beautiful bed and breakfasts, and even further out, ranches, log cabins and more. Some of our favourites in this region include the Hotel Andaluz, a chic and comfortable hotel in the Downtown area, the Hotel Parq Central, a boutique hotel combining the best of historic elegance with contemporary comfort, and the Los Poblanos Inn, an organic farm and historic inn where you can retreat from busy city life and relax.
