Albuquerque is a true oasis in the desert. With amazing scenery, a fun and festive local culture, good public transportation, and a well-educated population, the future of this town looks bright. All that's missing is you. Let us introduce you to your new hometown.
First of all, this is a city that loves a festival. Albuquerque is the Ballooning Capital of the World, and why not, when there's this much gorgeous scenery to see? Even on land, recreation revolves around getting higher-- all the way up to the top of the Sandia Mountains. You can use the Tramway to see the skyline, or you can participate in the International Balloon Fiesta each October with your own hot air balloon. Not sure if ballooning, as a hobby, is that high on your priority list? Rainbow Ryders, a local company, puts ordinary people in the sky in their fleet of hot air balloons. The Albuquerque International Balloon Museum will give you a sense of the history of hot air ballooning all over the world.
Some of what you'll see while you're up there, include the Sandia and Manzano Mountains, as well as the Petroglyph National Monument. It's exactly what it sounds like: pictures carved in stone, of animals and plants, and people, painted by New Mexico's first people. Certain areas of the Sandia and Manzano mountains are paved with hiking and biking trails, making the wildest areas of Albuquerque accessible to hikers. The Rio Grande River also flows through the city,
This is a city that remains mightily connected to the earth. Some of the ABQ's best museums make it clear how the earth evolved, and how human life fits into that picture. The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science makes geologic history-- which of course happens over several millennia-- accessible to those of us who can only hope to live one hundred years. Here you'll explore the geology of caves, volcanoes, and dinosaurs. The Albuquerque Biological Park gives a good overview of New Mexican land today.
Then, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center introduces human life to the picture we're forming of New Mexico. How did New Mexico's first people adapt to the desert? Answer: they built pueblos and tailored their lives to make the most of a dry climate. More recent history, however, is also more troubling. The Manhattan Project, a gathering of top physicists and defense leaders, came to Los Alamos in the mid twentieth century to use the desert as a testing ground. What remains now is the National Atomic Museum explores America's experimentation with nuclear weapons.
Today that association with science and technology lives on, making a positive contribution to life in the ABQ. As the home of the University of New Mexico, and Sandia National Laboratories, a renowned R&D lab, Albuquerque is still a center of innovation.
