The city rises out of the Southwestern landscape against a backdrop sculpted by the Sandia Mountains. People move about town at a leisurely pace whether it be on foot, in a car, or like an old desperado on the back of a stallion. You look upon the locals with increasing envy as you indulge in green chili enchiladas under the warm sun. You wonder if you could maybe even relocate here. But before you make a decision, pay a visit to one of our hotels near Albuquerque International Airport and fall in love with this city in the sand.
The wind sweeps away your fear of heights when you marvel at the panoramic views from the top of Sandia Peak. The tramway ascends to a height of 10,378 feet and over 11,000 square miles of the New Mexican desert. This, you think, must be what the eagles feel like. After descending from the steep slopes of the mountain peak, slide into one of our ABQ rental cars and cruise the downtown avenues until you come across the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. Wander through the powerful exhibits and get an inside look of life of the original locals of the area.
As you peruse the streets of the city center, the scent of roasted green and red chilies will take you aback. These two staples of New Mexican cuisine are involved in one way or another with most plates of food coming out of the Mexican-inspired kitchens. Many of the hotels in Albuquerque have their own eateries churning out dishes like chili con carne and enchiladas so you won’t have to go far for a fine meal.
This isn’t just an ordinary trip to a place you’ve been to many times over. This time you’re going to the “Land of Enchantment.” Travelocity’s unbelievable offers on the best hotels by Albuquerque International Sunport will ensure your stay is as convenient as possible…perhaps even a permanent one should you fall for this magical place.
