Five Proposal Ideas in Albuquerque

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! If you are planning on proposing to your sweetheart and need ideas, check out this fun, creative list! Albuquerque is full of options when it comes to picking the best location for such a lovely and memorable moment.

  1. Sandia Crest This a wonderful and romantic place to pop the question. With the dazzling city lights of Albuquerque below your feet, ride the tram to the top and take in the gorgeous view. Bundle up ’cause “Baby It’s Cold Outside!”
  2. Old Town – With many great backdrops for pictures to capture your special moment, Old Town in Albuquerque is rich with opportunity! The options feel endless. If you are looking to catch some of the local culture and essence, consider this enchanting location. As you wander through the square you’ll notice dozens of romantic spots available, my favorite being the gazebo in the center.
  3. Hot Air Balloon Ride – This is another exciting idea that also includes some beautiful Southwestern scenery from a different vantage point. Proposing in this manner provides a riveting perspective and a captivated sweetheart. Make sure you stay warm as the weather is still a bit chilly!
  4. The Botanic Gardens – The Gardens are beautiful all year round and within are many locations from which to choose. Speaking from personal experience, my fiancé proposed to me at the River of Lights on December 3rd and it was beautiful! The walk through the gardens is amazing at any time of year and is classically romantic.
  5. The Bosque – A romantic and bundled up stroll along the Bosque is also nice. Beneath the cottonwood trees and overlooking the Rio Grande – could that be any sweeter? Take a thermos of hot chocolate to help keep you warm.
