The massive Albuquerque Biological Park is actually several wonderful attractions in one: The Albuquerque Aquarium, the Rio Grande Botanic Garden, The Rio Grande Zoo, and Tingley Beach, all linked by a train that’s included in the price of your ticket. The Zoo has a good collection of the popular large animals that you’d expect to find. The Aquarium focuses on species from the Gulf of Mexico, with jellyfish, seahorses, eels, sharks, turtles, and rays. The Botanic Garden has a wide variety of vegetation with a special focus on desert plants. It also includes an indoor butterfly garden. Tingley Beach is a nice place to relax by a pond. You can even go fishing!
