When WestJet flies to this destination:
Albuquerque is ready to welcome you to New Mexico. With more than 256 days of sunshine, it’s always a good time to visit this beautiful city.
Often called the land of enchantment, Albuquerque offers all the right ingredients for a great getaway. The state’s turquoise skies and rugged Southwestern landscape offer up something exciting for visitors of all ages. Ski in the mountains, raft on white-water rapids or fly in a hot-air balloon. Discover the state’s past in Albuquerque’s many museums that celebrate everything from its prehistoric past to its diverse culture.
The Albuquerque Museum of Art and History displays both permanent and special exhibits that showcase the area’s unique heritage. Don’t miss the sculpture gardens and walking tours of Old Town while you’re there. Travel back in time at Casa San Ysidro, the historic house of The Albuquerque Museum in the Village of Corrales – a Spanish Colonial hacienda house with a comprehensive collection of New Mexican art and furnishings.
The ancient past comes to life at The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. This interactive museum features active walk-through volcano simulations, ice-age caves and plenty of dinos to discover. Educational films play on a five-story screen while the museum’s planetarium will take you through a journey of the solar system.
If you’re travelling with kids (or kids at heart) take in the ABQ Bio Park. It’s a special place where you can hear a lion’s roar, descend into a coral reef and roam through lush gardens. The Park features the Rio Grande Zoo, the Albuquerque Aquarium, the Rio Grande Botanic Garden and Tingley Beach – a favourite along locals.
Of course, no visit to Albuquerque is complete without experiencing the state’s favourite pastime: hot-air ballooning. Whether you visit the Balloon Museum to see its international collection of art and exhibits or you take flight in a private tour above the city, it’s really an amazing sight to see.
If you’re seeking something off the beaten path, consider a scenic guided tour. Whether you walk or hike through Albuquerque’s many trails or hop on a sightseeing vehicle, you’ll be transported through the amazing landscape of New Mexico. From its mountains that provide incredible views to its desert areas where you can spot a chameleon or two, there’s always something to see in Albuquerque.
