Albuquerque, New Mexico, is a gem of the Southwestern U.S. that traces its roots back for centuries, drawing on a rich Native American heritage. Outdoors or in, there is no shortage of family-friendly activities or arts and culture here. Go hiking and biking, golfing or to a spa, or hot air ballooning for a bird’s eye view.

Albuquerque vacation rentals have your home base covered with houses, townhouses, and more.

Fly high or lay low in Albuquerque

Whether the blue yonder beckons, or you answer the call of a white-knuckle amusement park ride, Albuquerque vacation rentals provide the R&R you need to re-energize for whatever’s next. For something more relaxed, the slower pace of a guided bike tour or aerial tramway view are excellent options as well as the array of history and science museums and cultural and environmental centers here. Search for eclectic finds in the many galleries and studios and authentic Native American jewelry and pottery. Breathe in the desert scents of sage and piñon as you sit back and savor local cuisine.
