Albuquerque Tourism and Sightseeing
Diverse cultures, authentic art and vibrant traditions have shaped the centuries-old story of Albuquerque. Soak in our blue skies and 310 sunny days a year, breathe the high desert sage- and piñon-scented air, and you’ll understand why Albuquerque is a destination like no other. The city's uniqueness is reflected in the culture, traditions, food, music, art, dress and attitude. Arts & Culture Native American, Spanish and Western heritage permeates the very essence of this place. Traditional and modern creativity flourish here. Our distinctive culture gives rise to an abundance of art, galleries and theater – making Albuquerque a highly ranked arts destination by AmericanStyle magazine. Albuquerque offers an intense immersion into Native American culture, and there is no shortage of ways to discover it. Start by visiting the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, then see ancient cliff dwellings, petroglyphs or a pueblo; exposing yourself to thousands of years of living history. Cuisine Albuquerque has an abundance of culinary choices. Our ethnic restaurants are plentiful as well as locally owned options. Sample traditional New Mexican flavors and our famous red and green chile. When you eat in a New Mexican restaurant you'll be asked “Red or Green?” which indicates red or green chile on your dish or a combination, called “Christmas.” Scenic Beauty – An Outdoor Enthusiast Paradise Albuquerque’s natural landscape has striking variations in terrain at elevations ranging from 5,000 feet in the Rio Grande Valley to Sandia Peak’s 10,000-foot crest. With the Sandia Mountains in our backyard, outdoor recreational opportunities are accessible and abundant. The city’s geography lends itself to hiking, biking, rock climbing, mountaineering, bouldering, geocaching, birding and more. Don't miss a ride on the famous Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway. As the “Hot Air Balloon Capital of the World,” balloons dot the sky here nearly every morning and especially during the world’s largest hot air balloon festival each October. More and more golfers are coming to Albuquerque – one of the sport’s best-kept secrets. Golf Digest and Golf Magazine have ranked several of our courses among the best in the country for good reason.
