New Mexico is internationally known as a mecca for artists, and many wish kids would like to count themselves among them. Sculpture gardens are the kind of galleries in which it's OK for kids to run around as they follow their curiosity from one large work of art to another.

They can take a self-guided tour or enjoy one led by docents.

Hot Air Balloons in Albuquerque, New MexicoWhimsical is a good word to describe kids who wish to visit the Fantasy Garden for children, a 52-acre botanical park. A huge, but friendly, dragon sculpture welcomes visitors into a giant's castle where kids can ride ants, walk through a carrot and enter a playhouse shaped like a pumpkin.

Much of the garden is oversized, allowing children to feel right at home in and amongst the play features.

Kids who love history and natural beauty don't have to go far from Albuquerque's city center. Petroglyph National Monument is a 7,236-acre park offers hikes through two canyons.

You can view some of the monument's 20,000 petroglyphs, stone carvings from 400 to 700 years old that tell about the lives of Ancient Pueblo Indians and Spanish explorers.

Maybe a day on the water is a wish come true. Rio Grande Nature Center State Park located in a cottonwood forest, also on the west side of town, is an idyllic walk along the meandering Rio Grande River.

The 270-acre park includes a nature center with a river observation room from where kids can get an up-close look at turtles lazing on rocks in the sun as well as waterfowl and other wildlife.

The tram is located east of the city in the Cibola National Forest.
