Petroglyph National MonumentExploring Albuquerque in the summer usually means taking part in a variety of activities that range from historic sites like Petroglyph National Monument to educational venues like Explora Science Center. Sometimes, enjoying Albuquerque also means taking a weekend to relax at home and take advantage of everything that an Albuquerque apartment community like the Alvarado Apartments has to offer its residents.

Here are a few ways you can enjoy Albuquerque this summer, especially if you’re a new resident at Alvarado Apartments or are thinking about renting an apartment with us.

Leisure and Fun Just Steps Away from Your Apartment

Taking weekend vacations to visit friends, entertainment venues, and natural areas like national parks can fill just about every weekend of the summer with activities. However, sometimes all you need to truly enjoy the weekend – or any lazy day during the summer – is access to a community pool, barbecue grills, and a hot tub. At Alvarado Apartments, you’ll be able to enjoy all three.

If you find yourself particularly busy during the summer and you can’t get out to enjoy the pool as much as you’d like, you can still enjoy the pool in the colder months of the year since the pool at Alvarado Apartments is heated and available for use even if the weather is a little chilly. When the weather isn’t cooperative enough for the swimming pool, you can also take a spin in the community wellness center.

Enjoying Albuquerque in the Summertime

Sandia Peak TramwayFrom historic sites and museums to theaters and parks, Albuquerque is full of educational activities.  There are also endless nature areas to enjoy that range from remote wilderness areas to city parks and recreational areas. The Sandia Peak Tramway is a longstanding favorite for both tourists and residents, and the Albuquerque Biological Park is another place to visit at least once in the summertime.

For entertainment that’s a little more remote, you can explore the Rio Grande Nature Center State Park, as well as the La Luz Trail and Elena Gallegos Park. If you’re an avid hiker wanting to take advantage of more than a million and a half acres of wilderness and trails, Cibola National Forest is worth a trip this summer.

If you only want to travel a short distance to enjoy your outdoor summer activities, you might want to check out the trails along the foothills that hug the border of Albuquerque. The trails aren’t too difficult and are an excellent destination when you want to enjoy a hike without having to pack a week’s worth of gear and travel to an extremely remote place.
