It has an elevation of 4900 feet, making it one of the highest US cities. Each year the city of Albuquerque hosts the international balloon fiesta. This is one of the largest gatherings in the world for hot air balloon enthusiasts. Thousands of hot air balloons line the skies and it is quite an awesome sight to see. I don’t prefer heights, but it still looks like a lot of fun. Albuquerque is a huge city with lots of wonderfully fun activities for tourists. There are many different Museums, art galleries, and specialty shops all over the city. Another great reason to visit Albuquerque is the fact that New Mexico recently decided to legalize recreational marijuana. Anyone visiting Albuquerque can legally purchase recreational marijuana from a number of dispensaries located across the city.

The prices on legal marijuana supplies are a little higher than some other places around the country, but we are proud to be one of the few states with legal recreational and medical cannabis.
