About Albuquerque, New Mexico
Albuquerque is a charming city rich in culture, creative energy, and some of the best sunrises in the Southwest. A winter ski trip is always within a few hours’ drive and natural hot springs are sprinkled throughout the state. The best part is that the state of New Mexico is a lesser known treasure; with a reasonable cost of living and housing, a variety of cuisine to explore, and traffic mild enough to get across town in 15 minutes. Since 2013 Albuquerque has been mentioned and recognized over 175 times for the climate, culture, cost of living, biking and hiking trails, and best places to live, among other noteworthy mentions.

Albuquerque boasts views of the Sandia Mountains to the east, where skiing, kayaking and hiking are prime outdoor adventures for enthusiasts of all ages and abilities. The high-desert climate makes the city an ideal year-round location for taking in a round of golf or enjoying a run. In fact, Albuquerque is known as one of the fittest cities in the nation.

A marriage of Native American foods with Spanish ingredients brought by settlers more than 500 years ago, the cuisine is what makes New Mexico unlike any other destination. They are known around the world for their abundant crop of chile, an essential ingredient in authentic Southwestern dishes. Albuquerque is a mix of old with new. You’ll find treasures like Old Town in Albuquerque where Spanish-inspired architecture house popular bakeries, cafes, wineries, cantinas and grills. It is a multi-culturally diverse community where people feel welcomed and inspired.
Whereas temperatures can climb up to 100 degrees during the peak of summer in the lower elevations, daytime highs average only in the 70s in the mountains. Most of the southern desert part of the state will only receive 10 inches or less of precipitation, while twice as much precipitation will fall in higher elevations. Relatively low humidity and more than 300 days of sun are just two more reasons residents take advantage of a variety of outdoor activities.
