Albuquerque is centrally located in New Mexico and offers countless museums, pueblos and galleries. New Mexico is steeped in thousands of years of Indian culture and the past 500 years, a blended Indian American, Hispanic and Western culture. The vistas and blue skies that unfold before you are incredible. A perfect place to use as a base for dozens of day trips throughout New Mexico. Several art, food, and wine festivals are held throughout the year both in Albuquerque and Santa Fe as well as various small town festivals such as the September Chili Festival in Hatch. Every October Albuquerque is the center for the International Balloon Fiesta where hundreds of balloonists take off everyday - the sky filled with balloons of every shape and color. Half a mile from the house is Rt. 66 (Central Ave) that includes Nob Hill (vintage 50s shops and plenty of restaurants), University of Mexico that takes you downtown Albuquerque and the museums of nearby Old Town Plaza. Favorite destination - 70 miles West to Acoma Pueblo - the Sky City. Santa Fe is less than an hour from Albuquerque unless you take the Turquiose Trail road through the Sandias - a beautiful drive that takes you through Madrid - an artsy community made famous by the movie Wild Hogs. New Mexico has 13 National Parks such as Chaco Canyon, Los Alamos, Carlsbad Caverns and El Morro. In addition, NM offers skiing, mountain biking, white water rafting, rock climbing, hiking, birding, biking (over 400 miles in Albuquerque), and countless other sports. Come spend a week or two in the Land of Enchantment.
