Take a walk down narrow streets among century-old adobe houses that are home to New Mexican eateries and tiny artisan shops that sell jewelry, rugs and pottery. Let yourself and your love be transported to an earlier era in Old Town Plaza. While there, visit an 18th century San Felipe de Neri Church. Also nearby is the natural history museum. “Romantic hidden patios, winding brick paths, vibrant flower gardens and dramatic balconies await your discovery.” Also nearby Old Town is the Civic Plaza with an open-air stage and a splash pad and for those inclined for a night out on the town, check out the Hip East Downtown district where dance clubs and live bands await you.
There are many ways to get around Albuquerque and see the sights. Bike tours, walking tours, segway tours, trolley tours, jeep tours and more… A few of my favorites and probably the most romantic of the bunch are the tramway tours, the hot air balloon tours and the Duke City Peddler. If you opt for the tramway, get ready to go up into the mountains and get a beautiful aerial view of the city. While you are up there, if you visit in the winter, you can get some skiing in with your loved one. For a tour that is a little more offbeat and less romantic, but sure to give you a reason to snuggle closely to your sweetheart, try a ghost tour about the city.
The Arts in Albuquerque
“Consistently ranked as a top arts destination, Albuquerque offers an abundance of artistry of all forms, from visual arts to theatrical performances and from traditional to contemporary.” There really is something for everyone in this city. If you want to go to museums, there are many to choose from. I suggest a trip to the Hot Air Balloon Museum and the Fine Arts museum as well as the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.
If getting out into the open air and communing with nature is your thing as a couple, visit the Bio Park and the Elena Gallegos Open Space. The Bio Park offers an aquarium, zoo, Botanic Garden and beach experience.
If going to the theater is your idea of enchanting, then visit the historic Kimo Theater or the Albuquerque Little Theatre. If none of that sounds like a romantic evening for two to you, then you can always try the New Mexico Philharmonicand listen to some great music.
Albuquerque, NM is home to a minor league baseball team called the Isotopes. They play in Isotopes stadium.
