MY FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT ALBUQUERQUE
Albuquerque is a very unique place for me; it’s very hard to describe all the things you can experience. So where do I even begin? Waking up early for a workout knowing you will definitely see and experience beautiful sunrises and hot air balloons, is definitely top of my list. On weekends, I love waking up, going for a walk amidst our beautiful skies and glorious mountains, and meeting up with my friends for some delicious coffee at one of our many local shops in town. The food here is delicious and second to none. Everything with green chile, please!
We are so fortunate to have wonderful weather — Fall season in Albuquerque is, well, wow! The change of colors of the trees around the Rio Grande, the smell of the green chile roasting, and the International Balloon Fiesta — just spectacular.
Albuquerque has it all. We are a very friendly community, and we are always going to welcome you as part of our family. Te esperamos con los brazos abiertos!
