The Top 10 Guide to Albuquerque Dating

From Sandia Peak to Old Town and Downtown, we’ve got historic Albuquerque’s top ten dating spots covered!

Rugged mountains and the high desert surround Albuquerque, which is a town whose culture and history are as rich as its natural resources. Whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast, an arts aficionado or a history buff, Albuquerque offers a plethora of exciting venues for dating. Here are ten popular ideas for fun-filled dates in Albuquerque.

1. Old Town and the Albuquerque Museum

Get to know each other as you stroll on the winding brick roads that have been embellished by hidden gardens and patios. Stop at the Candy Lady for some delicious chocolate, and then sit on one of the wrought iron benches while you discover history and each other. Explore the history of a fascinating city while creating a new history with someone special.

2. Have Lunch or Dinner at La Crêpe Michel

Housed in an historic adobe home, La Crêpe Michel provides a romantic ambience for a meal in Old Town Albuquerque.

3. Explore the Downtown Culture

Downtown Albuquerque serves as a showcase for New Mexico’s culture and arts. Take in a show at the historic KiMo Theatre.

4. Take a Ride on the Sandia Peak Tramway

As the world’s longest aerial peak tramway, the Sandia Peak Tramway transports you past some of the most breathtaking scenery in New Mexico. From the observation deck, you’ll be treated to an 11,000-square-mile panoramic view of the Rio Grande Valley and the Land of Enchantment.

5. Ski and Golf

Speaking of Sandia Peak, the Sandia Peak Ski Area is a great place for novice skiers. This is the perfect destination if one of you is a skier and the other is not. Treat your non-skiing partner to a lesson. In the late afternoon, you can even enjoy a game of golf.

9. It’s All Happening at the Zoo

The Rio Grande Zoological Park is home to a diverse population of exotic and common species. Be sure to check out the new African exhibit, which features chimpanzees, warthogs, red river hogs, cheetahs, hippopotami, spotted hyenas, African wild dogs, Marabou storks, Cape Griffon vultures and more.
