NORTHWEST. You may not expect to find an aquarium in the desert, but Albuquerque's got a big one. Brimming with sea life from the Gulf of Mexico, the 450,000-gallon aquarium shows the natural habitats of some fascinating creatures, such as moray eels, butterfly fish, parrotfish, and lobsters. A separate 285,000-gallon tank houses several types of sharks always a hit with the kids. Restaurant and gift shops conveniently located onsite. Combine a visit to the Aquarium with one to the Botanic Gardens and the Rio Grande Zoo for a full day of family friendly fun.
