Taking a RV trip through the Land of Enchantment along the old Route 66 is probably one of the best road trip scenarios you can imagine. Of course, just driving around in an RV isn't any fun unless you stop to see the sights.
All The Comforts
Whether you make it your last stop before rolling home or the first stop to establish a base camp for your adventures, the Route 66 RV Resort is good place to park the RV and get comfy. The resort sits close to the Route 66 Casino Hotel, which offers plenty of table games, five restaurants and bars and an indoor theater, among other amenities.
Where The Wild Things Are
In some cities, you have whip around from one side of town to the other in order to enjoy attractions like a zoo or an aquarium. Albuquerque doesn't have that problem. The Albuquerque BioPark combines a zoo, an aquarium, a botanical garden and a major park in one sprawling area. The complex might take a few days to properly explore. In addition to the normal attractions, special events like the River of Lights and sleepovers at the Aquarium provide the opportunity for special moments that you won't be able to find almost anywhere else.
Living In History
Although New Mexico didn't become a state until the early 20th century, it's had a lot of history and a lot of people call it home long before that. You can wander the streets of Old Town Albuquerque and take in almost 10 city blocks full of classic adobe buildings, some of them dating back to the late 18th Century. You can visit the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center and explore the history of the Pueblo peoples, or watch some of their dances during the weekends. Or if you're feeling up to walking a 300-year-old city at night, sign up for a Ghost Tour and learn some of the dark history hidden in the back alleys of the Land of Enchantment.
Eat Like A Local
Every town has at least one place that is a local favorite, a place that is considered iconic. The Frontier Restaurant across the street from the University of New Mexico is just that sort of place, serving up green chiles and homemade tortillas to hungry students and visitors alike. Or, if you want to get a taste of something newly famous, a shuttle bus can carry you from the Route 66 RV Resort to the Route 66 Pit Stop, home of the half-pound Laguna Burger. All of this, and you hardly have to move the RV to get there.
