Albuquerque’s Hidden Gems
There are a lot of places that you can visit in Albuquerque, but what if you’re looking for something a little different? Smaller, perhaps, or not what dozens of tourists head off to do. You might love the zoo, but what else is there?
Travel to Elena Gallegos Park for a hike through beautiful desert country where flowers bloom, mountains reach toward the sky, and the sky is open and blue. Here you can experience the Sandia Mountains and have access to miles of various hiking trails, picnic sites, or biking trails. You can experience the quiet of New Mexico with easy access and plenty of time to meditate, get in a good hike, or simply enjoy the outdoors.
If you happen to be in Old Town, why not step inside of the American International Rattlesnake Museum? Learn all about fangs, venom, rattles, and more – all things rattlesnake related. Since it’s creation in 1990, the American International Rattlesnake Museum has been written about in dozens of periodicals. It’s a great place for kids and adults and showcases all kinds of unique things – all related to rattlesnakes.
Have you ever wanted to be involved in a whodunit murder mystery? Then contact The Spy House and request to be included in their Murder Mystery Dinner. You will be given a character to play, props needed for your character, and perhaps even a few specific lines as you go throughout the dinner and the night trying to figure out what happened – all while enjoying fabulous gourmet food!
These are just a few of the hidden gems that Albuquerque can offer, but when you take some time to look around and explore the city, you’re sure to unearth many more. From playhouses to archeological finds in the hills outside the city, Albuquerque can mean a highly entertaining stay for anyone.
