Transcript of Albuquerque
Albuquerque has a professional ice hockey team: The New Mexico Scorpions.
Over 4.4 million tourists visit Albuquerque each year
Albuquerque's elevation of 5312 feet makes it the highest metropolitan city in America.
Albuquerque is the geographical center of New Mexico; know throughout the nation as "The Land of Enchantment."
The five extinct volcanoes, which appear on the horizon west of Albuquerque, are rare and distinctive landmarks.
The best thing to do in Albuquerque is: You can take a tour of the city in an, open-air trolley. 66-minute, 18-mile city tour starts/ends in Historic Old Town and takes you though a bunch of cool landmarks and museums that relate to this Beautiful town.
Well to begin, Albuquerque probably has the biggest entertainment is casinos and they are all mostly 10 minute drives from downtown Albuquerque. Albuquerque has 9 huge casinos either attached to resorts or just casinos. The casinos usually have live entertainment either dance shows or they pay musicians to come sing at their building. The nightlife in Albuquerque is probably the biggest part in entertainment you will see there. So after the final four games or game you might want to go out and have a drink or grab something to eat from one of our restaurants or you could just go party at a casino and gamble or go to a concert at the casino.
According to DineSite.com there are two hundred and fifty seven restaurants ranging from American, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, French, Greek, Italian, Mexican, Middle Eastern, to Pizzerias, Steakhouses, and Sea food. It would be very hard to come to Albuquerque and not find something good to eat. As you can see you could eat a different style of food each day for twelve days or you could eat at the same one each day it is really up to you. Restaurants Albuquerque International Sunport Airport covers an area of 2,039 acres which contains four runways. For the 12-month period ending December 31, 2006, the airport had 192,520 aircraft operations, an average of 527 per day: 41% scheduled commercial, 23% air taxi, 23% general aviation and 16% military. There are 322 aircraft based at this airport: 33% multi-engine, 30% single-engine, 18% military, 13% jet and 7% helicopter. The Albuquerque International Sunport is a world-renowned, full-service facility that welcomes more than six million travelers per year. As the state’s largest commercial airport, the Sunport serves as the gateway to the diverse cultures, rich history and breathtaking landscapes that make New Mexico. They are committed to providing a clean, safe and passenger friendly facility that is capable of meeting the current and future travel needs of visitors and New Mexicans alike. The Albuquerque International Sunport is owned by the City of Albuquerque and operated by the Aviation Department. Airport The stadium that is best suited for the final four is The Pit AKA University stadium. The stadium was voted for by the USA today as on of the top ten places to get pumped for the NCAA. It was also rated as Top 20 Sporting Venues of the 20th Century by sports Illustrated. The pit was also voted Top-10 Arenas in the Country.
The Pit is built in a 37-foot hole on Albuquerque's southeast flat land. First the roof was constructed, then the hole was dug and the arena built. That all happened in 1966. The unique Behlen roof 338 by 300 feet was set up by contractors and then 55,000 cubic yards of dirt was removed. About 28,000 yards of concrete were poured in the initial construction, which allowed a seating capacity of 14,831. Below is a chart of sports illustrated top twenty venues in the United States as you can see below The Pit is number thirteenth in the standings.
Stadium In March the average temperature is 55-66F and has a great possibility of sunshine (79%). So as you can tell it will almost always be sunny in March and it will probably be warm enough to maybe just wear a jacket to walk or go to the stadium with. The weather probably won’t affect your stay in Albuquerque or when you are watching the game, overall it should be pleasant outside and inside the stadium. Although sometimes like all states in the United States Albuquerque has some random unpredictable weather but this may or may not happen. If you will be going outside for a lot of things, like attractions or a meal it might get a little chilly because it is only an average of 57 degrees outside. Weather Entertainment Albuquerque has many rent-a-car locations. Some of the local rent-a-car businesses include Enterprise, Avis, Dollar Albuquerque, Thrifty Albuquerque, Hertz, Advantage, Alamo, Budget, and National; all of these businesses have a location at the Albuquerque International Airport.

(1) Also, if you would like to rent a van they all also offer vans as well. (1) And if you get in an accident the dealerships will bring you a new car. (1) Along with all that all the workers are very friendly and will do you their best to make sure get everything you want out of a rent-a-car. (1) Getting around
Albuquerque has a great public bus known as the ABQ Ride that is very cheap with a 3-day pass for $4 and a Summer Fun 4-month for kids for $13.(1) The buses are very clean and run on a very tight schedule.(1) The buses are also very clean and the drivers are very friendly.(1) The bus also runs all over the city except for far into downtown, the reason being is because the buses try to reach home base without stopping for gas and if they do go far into downtown they will not be able to make it back.(1) The buses also run till 3am on Fridays and Saturdays (early Saturday and Sunday morning) during the summer.(1) There are also special buses for handicapped persons and buses with bike racks.(1)
