Summertime is well underway in Albuquerque, and we want you to make the most of it!
Today we’re going to share more things to do if you only have one day in our culture rich city. After waking to the smell of fresh baked breads, french toast, souffle or quiche, have some of our delicious coffee, indulge in our sumptuous breakfast and be on your way for a day.
Start at the Titanic Artifact Exhibition at the Museum of Natural History & Science where you’ll explore 100 years of one of the world’s greatest maritime tragedies. www.nmnaturalhistory.org/
Next, put on some sunscreen and pack your water and camera, and head out to the Petroglyph National Monument. You’ll see over 200 petroglyphs at the Boca Negra Canyon, about a 20 minute drive from the B&B. www.nps.gov/petr/planyourvisit/bn.htm
Afterward, take a relaxing break and taste some of the award winning wines at Casa Rondena Winery in the north valley. This winery is an oasis in the city, offering some of the state’s best wines, and a spectacular retreat from a busy day. www.casarondena.com/
Then, meander across town to the Sandia Peak Tramway to get a ticket to ride to the top of the Sandia Mountains to experience breathtaking views of the city. www.sandiapeak.com/ Best viewing is sunset, so plan to go up in the daylight, do a short hike or have a cocktail at High Finance Restaurant, and return just after sunset. Then, head to Nob Hill and stroll until you find just the right bite to eat, and people watch along Central Avenue (Route 66) as the city comes alive in this eclectic and fun neighborhood.
Another wonderfully enjoyable day in lovely Albuquerque!
