New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment, offers the perfect mix of excitement and opportunity. Though present throughout the state, that balance is reflected best in its most populous city, Albuquerque.

What to do

A high-altitude city, Albuquerque is situated 5,000 feet above sea level alongside the scenic Sandia Mountains. That means those looking for hiking, rock climbing, and other outdoor activities will have no shortage of things to do. Take a horseback ride along the Rio Grande Valley, canoe through beautiful waterways, or tee off at one of the city’s many award-winning golf courses.

For those more inclined toward the nightlife, Albuquerque offers a plethora of activities. Downtown and neighborhoods like Nob Hill are chock full of clubs, bars, breweries and wineries. Moreover, with a culinary culture that fuses Native American, Mexican, and Spanish traditions, you’ll eat some of the most flavorful food in the Nation.

But the ABQ is also a place for family friendly fun. Kids will have a blast at places like the Cool Springz Trampoline Park, Albuquerque Indoor Karting, and Cliff’s Amusement Park. In addition, as the hot-air ballooning capital of the world and host of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta (only a week away!), you’ll have a chance to watch or ride these majestic aircraft.

A place for opportunity

With all the exciting things to do in Albuquerque, it’s almost easy to forget that it’s a place for opportunity. At the center of the ABQ, you’ll find New Mexico VA Health Care System. With 13 community-based outpatient clinics in the area, in addition to the main facility, we offer a range of careers aimed at making a positive impact on the lives of others.
