Albuquerque, New Mexico
About AlbuquerqueAside from an airplane, helicopter, or Ferris wheel, what’s the best way to check out the horizon from up above? A hot air balloon of course! Head over to the Rainbow Ryders hot air balloon tours. They offer sunrise tours starting at 6 am. Take part in the experience of a lifetime and watch the sun rise over the Sandia Mountains and the Rio Grande.
If you consider yourself to be a fan of snakes, then the American International Rattlesnake Museum is your cup of tea. The museum has the world’s largest collection of different species of snakes. From rattlesnakes to cobras, seeing all these snakes slithering around is bound to expose some oohs and ahhs!
If the fear of snakes kicked in before you even got in the car, maybe you should head to the golf course instead. The Twin Warriors Golf Club at Hyatt Regency is one of the most scenic courses in all of New Mexico. This course features beautiful streams and grassy knolls, and the backdrop of the mountains looks like computer wallpaper.
The Isleta Golf Club lays along the river banks of the Rio Grande, and is a 27-hole course, so you could play all day long. They also have a yearly driving range pass available, so if you’re a local resident trying to improve your golf game, this is the course for you.
