UNM Residents and Fellows Non-Work Activities

Many residents enjoy outdoor activities including skiing, biking, hiking, camping, climbing and running, all accessible in Albuquerque or within a short drive.The temperate winters and summers allow for year round outdoor activities.

Albuquerque is an affordable family friendly location and has a lot to offer.  The city hosts world class events like the annual Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta as well as a number of museums, art galleries, parks, a zoo, aquarium, and botanical garden.

Residents and fellows have access to sporting and cultural events, some at a discount.  UNM hosts Popejoy Hall with Broadway productions and musicals.  The community has many other theaters, and the Santa Fe Opera is located an hour north of Albuquerque.

The city has a growing food culture.  We have a unique local cuisine, blending Native American and Spanish flavors with signature ingredients such as red and green chile. Red or Green is the official state question, ask for Christmas if you want both,
