Albuquerque is in the heart of New Mexico.......there is so much
to enjoy in this city.
But you may certainly want to explore.....and from the central
location of the Golden Guesthouses in Albuquerque, you are easily accessible to all
of New Mexico's enchantments.
Here are some places to find more information about:

Ice Caves & Bandera
Crater - This is one of my personal favorites! A 50-ish style
"tourist attraction" far from urban civilization. The Ice Caves
are about 1-1/2 hours west of Albuquerque, in Navajo country on
the way to El Morro National Monument......if you continue on that
beautiful road to Ramah and find the Blue Corn Cafe still open.....consider
yourself LUCKY! And stop to dine!
Canyon - A thousand years ago Chaco Canyon served as political
and economic center for the Anasazi, a people's whose history is
forever shrouded in mystery due to their abrupt disappearance some
700 years ago.
Santa Fe Opera - the
site is nothing like the real thing of course.....but check it out.

along Albuquerque's West Mesa.
Mesa Verde National Park - Mesa Verde National Park is the nation's richest archeological preserve with over 4000 sites. Guided tours, food, history, and more!
