2005 Balloon Fiesta housing

by nvholst

Husband wants to attend Balloon Fiesta this year (we've been before). We've stayed at the Marriott Residence Inn, but wonder if there's a better place to stay (closer to launch field)?

RE: RE: 2005 Balloon Fiesta housing

Great! An insider like Kymbanm always has valuable tips! My husband & I (as well as daughter) were fortunate enuff to crew for team a couple of years ago--what fun! Got a short balloon ride as a reward, but just being part of the action was worth getting up at 4 a.m.

there's a Hilton Garden Inn that's nice a few exits away, near the Journal center. you should also be able to see the balloons from your room.

FYI . . . called Hilton today (5/31), it's booked up w/a 100-name waitlist for cancellations!

ooops, I had no idea! I've also stayed at the Hampton Inn at the Univ. area. a bit farther away, but not too bad. I would suggest that you check kayak.com for ABQ area for those dates, and see what it comes up with....good luck!

got a lead on a couple of B&B's, including Adobe & Roses . . .

There are buses that will take you to the Balloon Fiesta, I like them becouse you don't have to fight the traffic and pay for parking. You might stay at one of the Hotels close to the bus stop. Winrock Shopping center is one place they pick up and a Church in the NE heights is another. But check this out for sure they could all change. I did hear the busses were only going to run on the week ends. Might check the Balloon Fest web site for all that information.

Try Rio Rancho

by prometheus

There are a few motels there and it's not far from the balloon site. Infact it's a better location since it's north of the site, so traffic will be somewhat lighter. Any of the hotels in Rio Rancho would be adequate.

RE: 2005 Balloon Fiesta housing

by nvholst

Thanks, dmac733 and prometheus . . . we're busy checking out all the options--love the web for getting answers in advance! Corrales Country Inn has room for us (except for one night!) and it's the most reasonable rates we've found so far. Website sez it's 7 miles from the launch field, so it looks like that's where we'll be staying, providing that one night opens up soon!

Wow, I go to work for a few days, and miss all the action on this forum! :) Glad you found a place to stay. Also keep in mind that Sandia Casino is expanding right now, and are expected to have many more rooms available for Balloon Fiesta :)

RE: 2005 Balloon Fiesta housing

by kymbanm

BTW and FYI - the closest you can get to the field is the RV area at the edge of the property - so if you have, or want to rent, an RV for your time ...... it's an option ;) I believe the RV area is run by AIBF, so check their website if interested ........

RE: 2005 Balloon Fiesta housing

by nvholst

Thanks for the tips, we checked out renting an RV last year, but decided against 'cuz still would have to rent a car (wouldn't want to lumber around in a big ol' RV (the price of gas!) should the weather turn uncooperative during our days there and the Balloon Fiesta a bust . . .

RE: RE: 2005 Balloon Fiesta housing

by kymbanm

good point ... but I have to say that the RV park at Balloon Fiesta is one very long tailgate party at that time - so regardless of the weather, there's fun to be had :)

Travel Tips for Albuquerque

The Sandia Mountains

by VeronicaG

The Sandia Mountains seem to embrace Albuquerque. They remind me of the Andes Mountains in Chile for they seem to follow wherever one travels!

Here are some interesting facts about the Sandias:

*While Albuquerque sits at the center of the Rio Grande Rift area, the Sandia Mountains are located on the east edge of this zone.

*Some say when the Sandias were formed by uplift, they rose vertically more than 5 miles.

*The west side of the mountains is very rocky, while the east side has a gentle slope.

*37, 232 acres have been designated a wilderness on the western slope

*The Sandias have been deemed a sacred place by the Pueblo People of the area, who were granted most of the west side by a Spanish land grand in 1748.

(For more information see: www.cybergata.com/sandia.htm)

Moonlight Becomes You

by MountainLaurel

...unless you're chicken! Another travel tip for the daring: if you're in Albuquerque, and it's a full moon or close to it, and it's a clear night, why not take a moonlit hike? The air is so clear here that when the moon has risen high enough--that is, after 10 pm or so--you can see well enough to hike. Just don't get to close to the edge of the cliff, and if you hear something rattle, jump back. If you're a little leery, try hiking the 1 mile trail around the volcanoes. The ground is fairly even and the only vegetation is grass--no trees. My favorite trail to hike at night is the Sandia Crest Trail, which goes along the top of the Sandia Mountains. A little more dangerous but worth it--you can look down on the city lights or lose yourself (figuratively) in the woods. If you lose yourself, literally, go uphill--you'll get back to the crest eventually.

Pictures to follow, next full moon...

Great collection of folk art

by RblWthACoz about Hispaniae

This is one of the shops in Old Town that has a more unique selection than most others. They have a huge variety of folk art that is worth checking out before you commit to any purchases elsewhere. And whatever you don't buy, it is a good place to soak up the cultural vibe you get from all the pieces for sale.

Double Rainbow.

by ephobius about Double Rainbow.

Ambiente universitario. Muchos estudiantes acostumbran este sitio. Comida rĂ¡pida saludable, muchas cosas naturistas. Hay revisteros. Puedes hojear una revista mientras comes pero no te la puedes llevar a menos que la compres. De todo.

New Mexican Cuisine in a landmark house ...

by kymbanm about Casa de Benavidez

As you wander various tips on Albuquerque, you've probably already been educated on the difference between Mexican, and New Mexican food .... so I won't repeat it here :)

I will tell you, for a slice of the Terrirtory of New Mexico ..... go to Casa de Benavidez. The location is in the north valley - within the city limits but with all the feel of a country drive. The building is a traditional territorial style home converted to a wonderful restaurant with a pleasant outdoor dining area that even has a waterfall ....

The menu includes a variety of traditional New Mexico foods, prepared fresh in the kitchen for each order. I can't narrow this down to one single dish. Everything I've sampled was worth the visit .. last time I shared an order of fajitas w/ a friend ..... by the time we had our sopapillas we were stuffed!
