Albuquerque Car Rentals & Travel Guide

In the heart of New Mexico's diverse and ever-changing desert landscape sits the thriving metropolis of Albuquerque. When you first arrive in the city, you will immediately feel its warm, welcoming Spanish heritage. The city is alive with history and Native American culture. You'll want to consider a car rental in Albuquerque to explore the sprawling city and surrounding areas.

Day Tripping Around Albuquerque

The Albuquerque International Sunport Airport is located about 5.5 miles from downtown Albuquerque, so it won't be a long road trip to the heart of everything fun. You can rent a van if you are vacationing with the family or you might want to consider renting a four-wheel drive truck to explore the rugged desert attractions around the city. The Petroglyph National Monument sits 17 miles from Albuquerque and has numerous hiking trails with varying degrees of difficulty throughout the rugged volcanic landscape. The Sandia Peak Tramway, located about 17 miles from the city, transports you across deep desert canyons for stunning views and up 10,378 feet to the observation deck on Sandia Peak. If you're game for a day trip from Albuquerque, get up early in the morning and hit the road to Valles Caldera National Preserve, which is located 91 miles from the city. Set aside the whole day to explore the Preserve's historic cabins and prehistoric Native American sites and to learn about the region's super volcano.
