Winter Wonderland in the ABQ

The BioPark now boasts the only Tazmanian Wombats in North America.

Ok, we admit this will probably be the only place you visit that has the title “winter wonderland” and a photo of a baby wombat.  But seriously, while we get excited about light displays, luminaria tours, and holiday strolls, nothing is quite as exciting as visiting the brand new exhibit of Tazmanian Wombats at the Rio Grande BioPark – the only ones in North America, might we add?   Here’s a rundown of what else we think are must do’s for the holidays in the ABQ:

River of Lights:  through December 30 (although they’re closed December 24 and 25), visit the Botanic Gardens at the Rio Grande Bio Park for one of the state’s biggest light displays.  $8 adults/ $4 seniors, kids 3-12

Christmas Eve Luminaria Tour: put on by the City of Albuquerque in conjunction with several neighborhood associations, the luminaria tour is a must-see.  Whether you ride a city bus for the tour, walk, or drive your own vehicle, there is something magical about seeing entire neighborhoods illuminated by candles hidden in paper bags.
