The Botanical Gardens are lovely. I go at least once a year, if not twice. I love packing up a lunch and sitting out by the water. When the winter hits and all the flowers die, the River of Lights is put on. Certainly something you should see if you're in Albuquerque and want to escape the dessert for a bit :P Seriously though, it has a great variety of plants and the River of Lights is spectacular. Just be sure to get there before the gates open.
