Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta

From New Mexico in general and the area around Albuquerque, in particular, have been a haven for geeky travelers long before Heisenberg ever graduated from high school chemistry to hardcore cooking. If you’re a nerd through-and-through someone who appreciates a good nuclear museum or the physics behind hot air ballooning, ABQ (as it’s known to locals) should be at the top of your bucket list.

There are balloon rides, races, music, photo contests, food – it’s like Burning Man, but without all the hippies and insane desert heat.
