Albuquerque, the largest city in the state of New Mexico, sits in a high desert, straddling the Rio Grande. The modern downtown core of Albuquerque contrasts with its historic Old Town, and both offer visitors plenty to see and do. Choosing the best time to visit may depend on your tolerance for heat. If you’re looking for a summer vacation, in June – August you’ll need to be prepared for temperatures that peak at 90 – 95 degrees Fahrenheit. During spring, March – May, you may find the temperatures more comfortable, although they begin to creep up in late May. Spring and summer are popular with tourists, so you may find that hotels are booked early and flights more expensive. September – November are also mild, and there are fewer tourists, making the fall a great time to visit. In October, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta causes a bit of a busy blip, but it’s well worth seeing. During winter, December – February, you can expect much cooler temperatures, with highs that range from 50 – 55 degrees Fahrenheit, and the possibility of snow. Skiers and snowboarders will enjoy a visit to the nearby ski resorts, such as Sandia Peak and Ski Santa Fe.
