The Sandia Peak Tramway is Albuquerque's top attraction, and it is going to put you and your companions high up in the air. It is located at 10 Tramway Loop NE, and reviewers talk about the fact that it would be a good idea to bring a jacket. It can get a little cold that high up in the air, and just think about the view from up there. There is a reason why this attraction is ranked #1 out of over 200.

It is found in the part of the city that is a top attraction in and of itself, Old Town Albuquerque. You will love exploring both of these top attractions.
There is a great zoo to visit, a botanic garden and much more. There is only room for one more top attraction for this list of five though, and you're going to find this one exciting.
