Discover Albuquerque

Plan an RV road trip to the desert oasis that is Albuquerque. New Mexico's largest city is a cultural hub for the Southwest, offering world-class museums, tasty New Mexican cuisine, and fascinating local history. Burque is also home to some breathtaking countryside, with the Sandia–Manzano Mountains to the east and the San Mateo Mountains to the west. And as The Duke City receives an average of 310 days of sunshine every year, opportunities to get outdoors are endless.

The best time to rent an RV in Albuquerque is during the fall when the weather is just right, and top events like the New Mexico State Fair and the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta take place. Next time you're planning a road trip down Route 66, make your stop off in this vibrant New Mexican city.

Before rushing off to explore the best of Burque, you might want to think about whether it's an RV-friendly city. You shouldn't have too much trouble driving your rig around Albuquerque. Traffic can be bumper to bumper, but it doesn't rank among the top 40 most congested cities in the country. There are also several RV parks and oversized parking lots near downtown where you can leave your camper for the day while you see the sights.

Albuquerque is known for its high-quality museums, and among them is the Albuquerque Museum. The museum aims to preserve Southwestern culture and features dozens of significant historical and cultural artifacts ranging from conquistador armor to paintings by Georgia O'Keeffe.

Campers searching for panoramic views of New Mexico should take a ride on Sandia Peak Tramway. The longest cable car track on the continent, the Sandia Peak Tramway takes visitors over 10,000 feet above sea level to Sandia Peak, providing sweeping vistas of Albuquerque and the surrounding mountains and forests.

If you'd prefer to get out of the city and experience the New Mexican countryside firsthand, swing by the Petroglyph National Monument. This park covers over 7,500 acres of Albuquerque's West Mesa, including several dormant volcanoes and hundreds of petroglyphs carved by Ancestral Puebloans centuries ago. Hike through Piedras Marcadas Canyon and discover over 400 petroglyphs on the 1.5-mile trail, or hike up Black Volcano and enjoy sublime views of the surrounding high desert.
