Albuquerque, New Mexico’s largest city, basks in 310 days of sunshine, combined with a mild, dry climate and four distinct seasons. Very low humidity means that even when temperatures rise, summer is always comfortable, and our sunny winters are comparatively mild. The closest ski area is a 45 minute drive away, exceptional hiking trails in the Sandia Mountains are a 20 minute drive from anywhere in the city. The state provides endless natural sources of wonder and adventure spanning the dramatic northern mountains to the stark beauty of open spaces like our eastern high plains and southern deserts.
From the breathtaking views to resilient and diverse people to delicious chile-infused cuisine, New Mexico provides opportunities for constant amazement within a place and culture like no other.
