Senior-Friendly Area Attractions amidst the Beauty & Grandeur of the Southwest
Our native Albuquerque blends modern city features with breathtaking scenery and 310 days of sunshine each year. As one of the nation’s oldest cities, Albuquerque is known for its multicultural history and heritage, with Native American, Hispanic and Latino influences seen across everything from our architecture and cuisine to the arts, music and diverse shops and galleries found about town.
Just a short trip to the north from downtown and set amidst a backdrop featuring the Sandia Mountains, raised desert and timeless blue skies is Morada Quintessence. From our location, it’s easy to visit local grocers and pharmacies, restaurants and entertainment destinations, and only a few minutes more to the Historic Nob Hill neighborhood or the Old Town area and its many captivating art, history and cultural museums.
Albuquerque, quite literally, is also one of the nation’s hottest culinary destinations, with local chefs serving up trademark New Mexican flavors using signature red and green chiles like nowhere else! For classic New Mexican, there’s Mary & Tito’s Café, El Pinto, and Los Poblanos, just to name a few. There’s also Native American flair and flavors of the Indian Pueblo Kitchen, iconic roadside fare at Dog House Drive In, and a little bit of all things Mediterranean at Mykonos Café and Taverna.
Not all of Albuquerque’s beauty and wonderment is on the ground, though. Look towards the mountains and skies above and you’ll spy snow-covered ski slopes, the Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway, and the distinctly colorful fliers that make Albuquerque the “Hot Air Ballooning Capital of the World!”
Our familiar, hometown setting, superior care and service, and continuing access to necessities and the very best of Albuquerque are all part of a richer lifestyle overall, one that can only be found at Morada Quintessence!
