Rio Rancho Vacations

Rio Rancho is part of Albuquerque, a city with 550,000 residents. If you are flying in, Rio Rancho is approximately 13 miles (21 kilometers) to the north of the Albuquerque International Sunport Airport. The city center of Albuquerque is situated 9 miles (14 kilometers) to the south.

Rio Rancho is a popular place to head to while you are exploring Albuquerque as a large number of the area’s main attractions are within easy reach. Two destinations that should be at the top of every visitor’s list is the fabulous Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum and the ever-popular Balloon Fiesta Park. And if your schedule allows, be sure to visit the Petroglyph National Monument and the Rio Grande Nature Center State Park.

Spend an evening high in the stands of University Stadium, cheering on local heroes, the New Mexico Lobos. On game days follow the river of red, grey and white, to the stadium, then after the full-time hooter blows, join fans in the nearby pubs for a few post-game beers.

Finding somewhere comfortable to rest your head within Rio Rancho is easy. For a good night’s sleep check out the Nativo Lodge, the Marriott Albuquerque Pyramid North, and the popular Americas Best Value Inn & Suites North / Albuquerque.
