One of Albuquerque’s coolest attractions is the Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway, which takes riders on a 2.7-mile trip up to an observation deck on Sandia Peak, located in the Cibola National Forest.

Outdoorsy residents love Albuquerque’s many mountain trails for hiking, biking, running, and walking the pups. When you’ve gotten your fill of nature, take a Segway tour of historic Oldtown, visit the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, or dine on a burrito (with green chile!) from the famous Frontier Restaurant.
