One of Albuquerque’s most well-known attractions is the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Once a year, the sky fills with hundreds of hot air balloons, from the whimsical to the stunning. At night, these aircraft illuminate and create a glowing spectacle. The city also has a balloon museum, exploring ballooning as an art form, sport, and science. Another can’t-miss spot to visit is the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, where permanent exhibit subjects range from dinosaurs to volcanos. Art lovers flock to the University of New Mexico Museum of Art, which houses more than 30,000 works and artifacts, establishing it as the most extensive collection in the state. The Turquoise Museum, the Telephone Pioneer Museum, and the Rattlesnake Museum meet a variety of quirky interests with comprehensive and fascinating information. Nature seekers in Albuquerque will gravitate toward its sweeping views, peaceful trails, and peaks for sunset gazing. Both strollers and avid hikers alike can find their footing with various terrains, such as La Luz Trailhead, Sandia Crest, Boca Negra Canyon, and Paseo del Bosque Trail.
