Albuquerque, New Mexico’s largest city (with a metro population exceeding 1.1 million) is one of the most culturally diverse and historic cities in North America. Located along historic Route 66, Old Town Albuquerque was founded in 1706 on the banks of the Rio Grande, and is a charming, living reminder of the city’s regal Spanish and Native American heritage.

Albuquerque is known for its mild, dry climate and four distinctly beautiful seasons. With more than 300 days of sunshine, Albuquerque is perfect for outdoor activities or exploring cultural gems. Our average annual rainfall is about 9 inches, mostly during the late afternoon storms during monsoon season (July and August), and the average relative humidity is only 44 percent. Winters are sunny and comparatively mild. High altitude, low humidity and lots of sunshine mean visitors need to drink lots of water and use sunblock for protection.
