PLACES TO VISIT IN NEW MEXICO
If you are coming to the conference, try to spend a few extra days sightseeing – it’s worth it! Here are some links that will be helpful:
Albuquerque Convention & Visitors Bureau
Albuquerque Old Town and Museums, Art Galleries, etc
The Rail Runner Train from Albuquerque to Santa Fe
A deal at under $10 for a day pass that gets you from Albuquerque Downtown to Santa Fe. Ask if the hotel shuttle can drop you off and pick you up from the Albuquerque Downtown Station for a small charge.
The Sandia Peak Tramway
To the top of Sandia Mountain (10,378 feet above sea level). I advise acclimatizing for a few days first as the altitude can make you dizzy.
Acoma Pueblo Tour
The oldest continuously inhabited community in North America – home of the Acoma tribe and the Haak’U Museum. History and amazing views.
Santa Fe Visitors Website
About a 3 hour drive from Albuquerque
Home of the Manhattan Project at Los Alamos National Laboratory
Natural springs and spas, if you want to relax.
