Albuquerque, New Mexico sits at the crossroads of Interstate 40 and Interstate 25. It offers a unique combination of Mexican, American and Spanish cultures. Spring is a great time for a visit with the temperatures typically falling in the 60-70 degree range.
Local flavors include a breakfast favorite called the Croque Madame. It is made of black forest ham, tomato, mustard and gruyere cheese served over local bread. Served with a fried egg on top, it’s a hearty meal sure to easily hold you over until lunch. Try The Grove Café and Market to sample this and other local flavors.
Stop by the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum during your stay. While many associate hot air balloons with Albuquerque’s famous balloon fiesta, the museum gives visitors the chance to learn more. Its displays cover the history of balloon flight from 1783 to modern times. After a visit to the museum, some visitors are motivated to try balloon flight. If this describes you, visit the nearby Rainbow Ryders. They offer balloon rides.
For a glimpse at some of the local culture, visit the Sky City Cultural Center & Haak’u Museum. Built on top of a 367 foot stone bluff known as the Acoma Pueblo, the center is about 70 miles from Albuquerque but well worth the drive. There you’ll find guided tours of the pueblo homes and the historic San Estevan Del Rey Mission Church. The museum features both a history of the pueblo and examples of the beautiful pottery made by the Acoma people.
There are several excellent RV parks in and around Albuquerque including the American RV Park which has easy access to a number of local attractions.
