If you are arriving early or staying late, check out Albuquerque Old Town which is only a little over a mile from the hotel and the shuttle will take you there! If you’re up for an adventure, ride the Sandia Peak Tramway up the Sandia Mountain and look over beautiful Albuquerque! Book your trip in advance to receive group discounts. The tram is located about 16 miles from the hotel, so contact youthclubs@optimist.org for suggestions on transportation.
