Find Peace At Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge In Albuquerque, New Mexico
When life starts to get stressful, sometimes the best thing to do is escape into nature. You don’t have to travel far though; peaceful places in nature are all around us and it is far easier to access a quiet retreat.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
It is open daily and there is no entrance fee. For additional details about visiting the wildlife refuge, special hours, and more, visit its website or Facebook page.
