ABQ BioPark:

Visit the Aquarium, Botanic Garden, and Zoo!


Albuquerque Isotopes:

The Isotopes have celebrated 14 seasons, beginning in 2003. In 2008, the team set a franchise record in attendance with a mark of 593,606 (an average of 8,361 a game), marking a continuation of the rich and varied tradition of professional baseball in Albuquerque, one that dates back more than 100 years.


Historic KiMo Theatre:

Home to a variety of theatrical performances, movies, concerts, and more, the iconic KiMo Theatre continues to offer a unique venue for quality entertainment in Downtown Albuquerque.


Historic Old Town:

Old Town’s narrow streets and century-old adobe houses are home to New Mexican eateries serving enchiladas and sopaipilla pastries, and tiny artisan shops selling jewelry, rugs and pottery. Old Town Plaza is a charming spot overlooked by 18th-century San Felipe de Neri Church.


Sandia Peak Tramway:

A trip on the Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway transports you above deep canyons and breathtaking terrain a distance of 2.7 miles. See some of nature’s more dramatic beauty unfold before you. At sunset the desert skies produce a spectacular array of color, and your vantage point from the observation deck atop 10,378 foot Sandia Peak in the Cibola National Forest affords an 11,000 square-mile panoramic view of the Rio Grande Valley and the Land of Enchantment.


Rio Grande Nature Center:

Located on the Rio Grande flyway, the park offers excellent birdwatching opportunities throughout the year. There are indoor and outdoor wildlife viewing areas overlooking ponds, and trail access to the Rio Grande.


 South Broadway Cultural Center:

One of Albuquerque’s best-kept secrets, South Broadway Cultural Center is your gateway to excellent live entertainment, original art, cultural events, workshops and classes, and group gatherings.
