I will be in Alburquerque in October for the Balloon and I am trying to figure out the best place to stay. Here is our plan and maybe you can give me some advice??
Friday night: arrive via plane
Saturday morning: balloon festival
Saturday afternoon: spend day around Albuquerque
Saturday evening: back to balloon festival
Sunday morning: balloon festival
Sunday afternoon: drive to Sante Fe for the afternoon
Sunday evening: back to balloon festival?
Monday morning: leave via plane
How is the parking around the festival? Are there any hotels where you can walk to the balloon festival? Or are we better off staying near downtown Albuquerque and taking public transportation to the festival?
I am 30, will be with my mother who is 60. We are both ok with walking a mile or so if needed.
