"Fun City Rising out of the Desert" Albuquerque by Ken_Weaver

Albuquerque Travel Guide: 773 reviews and 1,599 photos

My work brought me to Albuquerque for a two month project. I have landed a dozen times( in route to other places) at the Albuquerque International Sunport....as it is called and wondered if there was anywhere more desolate! Well, I did get off the airplane this time and have discovered a very delightful place.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lots of Sun...seldom rains
  • Cons:Not a lot of green foliage!

    Zrim's comment made me laugh because I DID have a panic attack on the cable car--but it was worth it once we got to the top! Now I just drive to the crest instead.

    We saw the tram. I decided I would stay on the ground, thank you very much! :-)

    I think I'd have a panic attack on the cablecar. I agree that Albequerque is a neat place--especially at dinner time.
