A combination of a zoo, botanical garden and an aquarium, the Albuquerque Biological Park is a fun place for families with children or a group of friends.

Though if you purchase the combo ticket to enter into every location, you have to take the train that drives to them, which might be a bit boring, but it still worth it, because you get some plus info on your way. The zoo is the real treat, because you can see not only the usual animals, but also elephants and snow leopards. Amazing day!

2601 Central Ave NW, Albuquerque, NM 87104, USA

Combo ticket: $12 (adults), $5 (kids) - valid 9am-12am (Tue-Sun)
