Albuquerque Vacations

With every blast from the burner, the colorful orb is carried higher into the desert sky, the basket below holding you and your companions in its wicker walls. The people below become smaller and smaller, turning from humans to ants before your eyes. The landscape below resembles an architectural model, rather than real life. From your vantage point in the hot air balloon high in the New Mexico sky, you are free to ponder your place in life with a different purpose. Fears may be conquered, limits probably challenged, and memories surely made during your vacation in Albuquerque—whether it be in the basket of a hot air balloon, the spicy bite of a chili pepper, or in the eyes of that special someone. Gorgeous blue skies and sunshine practically all year-round make Albuquerque vacations perfect any time of year. Duke City is a picturesque mecca, rich with history and culture. The outdoor activities alone are reason enough to visit, but the beautiful scenery of the Sandia Mountains will also entice you. And, when you use Travelocity to help you find package deals in Albuquerque, you can savor every special moment without breaking your budget.
