From the city's reasonable accommodations at historic hotels such as Hotel Andaluz, to the sights you can't see anywhere else while floating in a hot air balloon. Money Magazine isn't the first to recognize Albuquerque for the experiences it offers.

From desert Jeep tours, to the many museums the city offers such as the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, it becomes clear that Albuquerque can provide entertainment for whatever your heart desires.

In its "20 Best Bike Paths in the West," Sunset.com ranked Albuquerque's 16-mile Paseo del Bosque Trail #11. But what's biking without some brews? The Active Times included Albuquerque in their "Best Value Destinations for Beers and Bicycles."
