Two weeks ago my sister and I headed to Albuquerque New Mexico to see my other sister. We haven’t seen each other since the pandemic began and we have never gone this long with out seeing each other. We literally FaceTime everyday, that’s how close we all are.
My sister lives in a small town 10 mins from the Texas border called Clovis, NM. It is a very small and secluded town, not much to do out there. When going to visit my sister we all decided to go to Albuquerque and spend a little time in the mountains enjoy a little bit cooler weather and relax.
While in Albuquerque we visited Sandia Peak, there are a few ways to get to the top but we opted for the tramway for obvious reasons, haha. We had two kids with us and a wagon for them and our stuff. Hiking up that mountain was out of the question and the shortest trail would take 5 hours!
I shared on my instagram a few clips from this trip along with a reel of our trip to Sandia Peak that you can see here.
Sandia Peak Tramway
This is how we made it to the top of Sandia Peak! To ride the tramway it is a $25 round trip cost and so well worth the ride (which you get a wide view of the canyons the peak has to offer
Trombino’s Italian Restaurant
There wasn’t much that we wanted to do due to COVID, however we did make dinner reservations at Trombinos this Italian Restaurant which was so good and I even had my first lemon drop, which was exceptionally good! If you are looking for a great Italian fix while in Albuquerque New Mexico, this is the place to get it!
McCalls Pumpkin Patch
We even had chance to stop my McCalls Pumpkin patch and it was blast! There was so much for the kids to do and see and is definitely a must when in Albuquerque!
These are the things that we did while in New Mexico, when we arrived back to my sisters home we and the kids enjoyed s’mores and coziness by fire.
I can’t wait to go back and experience a little bit more when things calm down. Have you been to Albuquerque before?
