Why Visit Albuquerque
With Route 66 running directly through town, Albuquerque is known for its unique history and quirky personality. The combination results in educational fun at the National Hispanic Cultural Center and the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. Visit Albuquerque for art, festivals, culture, regional eats, or a hot air balloon ride high above the Rio Grande River.
When to Visit Albuquerque
Albuquerque travel is most popular from September to November when the weather is comfortable and festival season keeps the city hopping. Winter sees an uptick in visitors who come to hit the slopes in the Sandia Mountains ski range, making it one of the more expensive times to visit. Spring and summer, however, are typically less crowded.
The Weather in Albuquerque
Albuquerque experiences more than 300 days of sunshine per year and has four distinct seasons with little precipitation year-round. It boasts very low humidity and a dry climate that in turn produces pleasant, comfortable summers featuring highs around 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The winter months are typically mild and sunny, with highs in the 40s and 50s.
