We were told by our driver from airport on the most amazing holiday lights we have ever seen. Just beautiful and spread out over the gardens so adds that element. Love to see the kids reacting to all as well.

Took a cousin on a surprise birthday trip, and bought tickets for the Rivers of Light. Arrived later than we intended, but the lines for the bus shuttle from the zoo were well organized, and we were quickly transported in the festive buses. We were all blown away by the beautiful light displays. The weather was perfect, and we were... More

I have lived in ABQ my whole life. I still go here every month, its a great way to get out of the hustle and bustle of city life. Also the river of lights is pretty cool!

Albuquerque's Biological Park is most definitely one of the most exciting places to visit. Visitors from all over the world can get a first hand experience of all the wonders of the Land of Enchantment. The park is extremely artistically and culturally designed and during these winter months, the park is amazingly decorated with thousands upon thousands of Christmas lights... More

We went there to enjoy the afternoon but were put off by the shabbiness of the entrance and the price.

There's so much to see at this site. You could spend the whole day, and it would be time well spent. They were just setting up the holiday lights, which will be on view after Thanksgiving. In addition to lighting the trees and plants, there are numerous lighted sculptures. It looks like it will be an incredible experience!

My husband and I visited the park on a sunny, warm November day. The park has several different areas to visit and is well laid out. We spent 2 hours walking to all the various attractions. Our admission was only $5.50 (senior rate) and also included the aquarium. Don't skip the aquarium as it is very interesting and features fish... More

I go there all the time to chill. It is beautiful, any season. Being prone to butterflies, I like summer. However, the festival of lights is eye candy in the winter. A perfect place to just be.

Albuquerque has an excellent Bio-Park. A wonderful place to walk and spend time with family or Friends. Each season has it's own beauty. I particularly enjoy the Japanese gardens.
