Get out of the rain! Desert Vacation in Albuquerque

3 Flares 3 Flares ×

April showers bring May flowers, but the gray days can get to you. Trade your soggy rain boots for your leather cowboy boots and head to a New Mexico vacation home for warm sunshine. Albuquerque is a great family vacation destination that offers plenty of cultural learning attractions as well as a chance to enjoy nature. This historic adobe in Old Town is the perfect vacation rental home for your desert adventure.

This home was built circa 1902 but has plenty of modern updates. It is the perfect paring of rustic charm and modern luxury. Features like the elegant kiva fireplaces and Olde West period inspired furniture make this a history lesson as much as a relaxing vacation. The kitchen is fully updated with stainless steal appliances for another touch of elegance. The home has plenty of space for 6, but location is the real key.

If spring rain has kept your family from playing outside, this home is perfect. You’ll be just a bloack and a half from Old Town Plaza. The location is ideal for walking to any of the many eateries, shops, and cultural attractions Albuquerque has to offer. Situated on Old Town Rd., a quiet street bordering Tiguex Park, towering cottonwoods, grassy fields, and a first rate playground are just steps outside your door. Immediately across the park are several museums including Explora, the children’s science museum. The Albuquerque Biological Park, including the zoo, aquarium and botanical gardens, is a short drive away.

If you prefer hiking boots to cowboy boots, check out the Sandia Mountains. Hiking and mountain biking trails abound. Visit dormant volcanoes and check out desert wildlife. If culture is what you’re after, the April 23rd begins the Annual American Indian Week. The festival climaxes April 28-30 during the Gathering of Nations Pow Pow. Over 3,000 Native Americans will gather for a celebration of song and dance that includes a competition and the crowning of Miss Indian World.
