On your next trip to Albuquerque make sure to consider employing our Albuquerque car hire services as your main means of transportation through this vibrant desert metropolis. While it is the largest city in the state, Albuquerque is oftentimes overshadowed by the state’s capital of Santa Fe as far as tourist destinations go, but you will be glad to know that Albuquerque has quite a few things to offer its visitors.
The city is served by the Albuquerque Sunport which is actually the major air hub for the entire state but you can also reach the city by road and rail. If you do land here you can employ our Albuquerque car rental services to have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport at an hour that you specify.
One of the attractions that the city has to offer is the Albuquerque Biological park which actually includes several separate attractions like the Rio Grande Zoo, the Rio Grande Botanical Garden or the Albuquerque Aquarium.
The Rio Grande Zoo isn’t as large as you might expect it to be when you compare it to the size of the city but it does feature many popular species like polar bears, giraffes, gorillas and many others. While all the animals are housed in very naturalistic exhibits, the focus of the exhibit areas are the seals, the polar bears and a large Africa area, where you can see big cats and a large elephant enclosure.
The Albuquerque Aquarium is a small one, but it is pleasant being focused on the saltwater species found in the Gulf of Mexico. One of the main highlights of the aquarium being a huge shark tank where you can see other ocean species as well.
The Rio Grande Botanical Garden has many gardens which are waiting to be explored, the emphasis being on desert plants. There is a glass conservatory where you can see desert and Mediterranean plants coexisting side by side.
These are just a few of the things that you can see and do while in Albuquerque so make sure to employ our Albuquerque car hire services in order to better explore this city and its surroundings.
