I am beginning to research all the wonders New Mexico has to offer and thinking of visiting in Oct 2008 for the balloon festival. Our kids will be 14, 9 and 6-yrs-old by then. We will be traveling from New Jersey and besides Disneyworld this would really be our first BIG cross-country trip.
We are looking to go somewhere different, see some different culture and of course have some relaxtion time in a new environment. Some thoughts I had:
- where to stay that would accommodate all 5 of us in one room
- what part of town would be best to see the sites?
- weather this time of year, is it warm enough to swim in hotel pool?
- what are the "must-sees" we should hit during a 6-7 day stay?
I am excite to begin researching this and want to make it as attractive as possible to the rest of the family. I thank you in advance for your advice :)
