    Traveling While Black

    Campo is the cutest spot for brunch. It is a restaurant located on the Los Poblanos ranch. The scenery is breathtaking, especially if you choose to dine al fresco. Surrounded by mountains, beautiful fields, and wildlife, the view is simply stunning. Food was also delcious. I ordered the brisket entree with a side of garlic naan. Many of the brunch dishes infuse local New Mexican flavors and spices, which was appreciated. Our server went above and beyond for us. I can’t fully remember her name, but she was awesome. Before or after brunch, you can peruse the herb garden and even have a run in with live peacocks. I highly recommend this place. It’s a bit off the beaten trail but a unique and fun experience.

    Traveling While Black

    Interesting afternoon with lots to learn about the Pueblo culture. When I visited I didn’t see a lot of other Black people….maybe 4 in total that were not a part of my group. I was there for 4 nights 5 days.

    Traveling While Black

    I came to Albuquerque only to do the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta which is one of the largest air balloon festivals in the world. If you’re planning on visiting for this event, I would HIGHLY suggest you plan well in advance as almost ALL accommodations fill up very quickly. We booked our hotel about 6 months in advance. You’re almost guaranteed not to have a place to stay if you wait until the last minute. Also, the prices become very expensive the closer to the event date. Book your flights early too. I flew into Denver, Colorado actually and drove on a road trip to the event as we wanted to see some other things along the way. Flying directly into ABQ near the date of the event is very expensive as it’s a smaller regional type airport. It was also cheaper to rent a car elsewhere.

    I also suggest trying to come the first two days of the event as they have additional events late in to the night like fireworks the first two days. You can always check the events calendar on the website prior to going so you know which days you want to go on. They have something different scheduled almost every day.

    I’d also say bring cash. It’s easier to buy food and drinks as it’s kind of a fair atmosphere.

    We went to the night glow the first night we were there. It was AWESOME. They hold all the balloons on the ground and fire them all up in unison to a timed countdown and it’s just madness. There are so many balloons and the atmosphere is so lively it’s almost overwhelming. Then we stayed for the fireworks which were also great. It wasn’t just some cheap fireworks show either.

    We barely got any sleep and came back for the Morning Ascension which is where they let all the balloons go up in the air. It’s so cool! Between the night glow and the morning ascension, I took about 2000 photos. I’m not joking. Keep track of your kids though as once all the commotion starts with the fires blasting and the balloons lifting, everyone just goes crazy and runs around like chickens with their heads cut off.

    If you’re looking for something else to do that will give you a great view of the natural surrounds, you can go to the Sandia Tramway. This is probably not something for people with a fear of heights to do. The tram takes you up to almost 11000 feet to the Sandia Peak and you can walk around up there and view the gorgeous desert landscape. It’s windy and a bit chilly up there so be advised. The tram was only about $20 I believe.

    There are also a lot of great hikes in the area including one that has wreckage from a TWA airplane crash from a long time ago. Just watch out for snakes.

    You can’t be in Albuquerque for too long without a local telling you to eat at Frontier. Frontier is a staple within the Albuquerque community in close proximity to the University of New Mexico campus and also has some tasty food. A cafeteria-style, order at the counter restaurant, Frontier offers all day breakfast (!!!!) and traditional New Mexican cuisine, which mirrors Mexican food fairly closely. The chiles are the key differentiator. I would recommend the “Christmas” option, which features both green & red chiles. Additionally, Cocina Azul offers a nice option for a “classed up” New Mexican dining experience; however, I like to listen to the locals. Frontier did not disappoint! Lastly, for those of you who care, there is a Papadeux’s there as well!
