Taking my kids to the Sandia Peak Tramway while we visit Albuquerque

Now that my kids are old enough to take on cross-country trips, my wife and I decided that we would take our van to visit family that lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Since we live in Florida, that would give us the chance to see at least four states if we drove through the entire state of Texas. Instead, we took a more northern route so we could stop in the Ozarks in Arkansas on the way to Albuquerque. My kids were particularly excited to see the Mississippi River when we reached Memphis. By the time we got to the Ozarks, we had been driving for several days and stopping in hotels and campgrounds along the way. My kids were getting a little restless by that point, but I promised them that we would be stopping for a few days once we reached our destination. It was a relief when I saw the sign for the New Mexico border and realized we would be in Albuquerque in just a matter of hours. The first thing we saw on interstate 40 were the Sandia Peaks. These mountains are a beautiful backdrop for the city of Albuquerque, and the famous Sandia Peak Tramway is a cable car system that takes guests high into the mountains to see the breathtaking views. Our kids were so excited that their eyes were completely agape for the entire experience. I hope it’s a memory they cherish for the rest of their lives, because I know that I definitely will. Albuquerque has a lot to offer, even to tourists like myself and my family.
