Home of the University of New Mexico, the Kirtland Air Force Base, and the Petroglyph National Monument, Albuquerque is a city with a rich history and unlimited opportunities. Experiencing nearly perfect weather year-round, Albuquerque averages more than 300 sunny days each year. Recreational opportunities abound in this desert town with golfing, biking, and skiing facilities, in addition to the Rio Grande State Park and hiking on the Sandia Mountains.

While living in an Albuquerque apartment, you’ll be struck by the rich cultural history that defines the city. Native American, Hispanic, and Latino influences are prevalent throughout the area, especially noticeable in the city’s cuisine, architecture, and art. With such a history of diversity, Albuquerque offers a diverse range of activities to match. Spend the day learning about Pueblo Indian history at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, or visit one of the many shops and boutiques along Route 66 for Native American jewelry. The Albuquerque International Balloon Museum provides the opportunity to learn about the history of hot air balloons, or you can see them in action at the annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the largest hot air balloon festival in the world. Considered the most photographed event in the world, you can see more than 700 balloons in the air at a time during this festival. A city full of excitement, it’s no wonder you’ll want to rent your next apartment in Albuquerque.
