I have lived and worked in Albuquerque for almost my entire life and still completely love the land of enchantment! Most of the people here are very friendly and helpful. While Albuquerque is a small big city it has a lot of character and many great qualities. As with the rest of New Mexico, Albuquerque offers plenty of options for incredible New Mexican food and particularly opportunities to try red and/or green chile. Situated right at the base of the Sandia Mountains there are many opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy the multitude of sunny days. The local brewery scene is consistently growing and getting better every year with an endless variety for every beer fan.
Albuquerque is a diverse city! It has many beautiful natural beauties that are great for families to go and picnic at like the Rio Grande River, or the Petroglyph National Park. It is a very culturally rich area. There is the National Hispanic Cultural Center and The Indian Cultural Center. There is a brand new park that was built to accommodate children and people of all abilities. There are a number of diverse educational institutions to accommodate youth of all ages in their education that helps aide them in their individual learning styles. Lastly, but certainly not least, the night life is roaring! There is a place in downtown Albuquerque called the Launch Pad that regularly features Native Artist from here within town.
Albuquerque is the ideal place for a taste of every season! You have wonderful areas to hike, fish, ski, ride bikes, camp, the outdoor life offers a never ending selection of things to do and not have to travel hours to do so. There is nothing that compares to NM chile! The food variety lacks nothing except real fresh sea food and the prices are not to high. One down fall of Albuquerque and really NM is that there are seasonal allergies that can be horrible for several months through out the year other than that I have lived in several states and I came back here not just for family, but for everything that Albuquerque has to offer.
