Albuquerque, New Mexico
The Sandia Peak Tramway is a great ridge deep into the hills and valleys of New Mexico. The ride itself takes you almost 3 miles across the beautiful scenery, up to the observation deck. This, of course, is at Sandia Peak, which is 10,000 feet up in the air. What’s the best kept secret to truly enjoy your ride? Its to go on a day during the week, when it is less busy and will be less crowded. This way, you will have room to actually move about the tram and see all the sights that there is to see. Also, when you’re on top of Sandia Peak, make sure to check out the various hiking trails, which are a great way to see some of the views that the tram cannot show you.
