Why rent a car in Albuquerque?
Quirky, laid-back Albuquerque is a typical western city that sprawls out rather than soars up – a car is a must. Cultural diversity and open space are the main draws. Highlights include a tiny Old Town core (from 1706), the rugged Sandia Mountain foothills and the vibrant Nob Hill university area
Where to go in Albuquerque
You can get around by foot in Old Town, with its ancient adobe and classic church. The banks of the Rio Grande are also walkable. But everywhere else is spread out and requires driving. Historic Route 66 (aka Central Ave) cuts through neon-studded downtown to the university area lined with restaurants, bars and kitschy motels. ‘Burque is offbeat – from the provincial turquoise and rattlesnake museums to the genuinely historic Petroglyph National Monument and Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. Whatever you do, don’t miss the Sandia Peak Tramway or a hike before dusk in Elena Gallegos Park.
Getting around Albuquerque
Albuquerque stretches about 12 miles east to west (along I-40) and 12 miles north to south (along I-25). The mammoth interchange is affectionately called “the Big I.” Taxis are rare and pricey, parking is metered and plentiful, and rush hour traffic is mild in comparison to similar cities. Surface streets are laid out in a grid, but that doesn’t stop the far too many fender benders. Not sure where you are? The Sandias will orient you – to go east, head uphill towards them; to go west, do the opposite. Roads are super-dark, so night driving requires extra caution.
Albuquerque car rental locations
All the major rental agencies can be found at Albuquerque International Sunport (ABQ), as well as at locations around town. Wherever you pick up your car, you’ll get a great deal on your Albuquerque car rental from Hotwire.
