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. Day to day residents enjoy all the unique restaurants, shops, farmers markets and those unparalleled landscapes. 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. Albuquerque has been mentioned and recognized for its climate, culture, cost of living, biking and hiking trails, and best places to live among other noteworthy mentions.
