I visited this place while on a trip to the Albuquerque Balloon Festival. They have some beautiful plants and they have a gift shop. This would be a great thing to do.

Good selection of plants, well laid out. Expect plenty of walking, of course. Lots of desert plants, but also farm area and Japaneses garden.
