Albuquerque is New Mexico’s largest city, and growing. The city has 310 days of sunshine a year, making it a great place to escape into outdoor adventure. One of the main features of Albuquerque is that it is known as the “Hot Air Ballooning Capital of the World,” because of its excellent flying conditions. The Balloon Fiesta takes place in Albuquerque every fall, and people from all over the world come to be a part of the fun and watch 500+ hot air balloons launch at once, at the world’s largest hot air ballooning event. This is also a great family destination. Bring the kids to Albuquerque Biological Park consisting of three different facilities, take them to a variety of amusement centers, and explore nearby museums. A vacation in Albuquerque is different than the rest, and will make memories and experiences last a lifetime.
