- Town in New Mexico
Rating 3.35 out of 5 72 reviews
If you are a white person and can get along fine here, you can get along fine anywhere. Prepare to be roasted, prepare for Native Pride :) you down?
Lived in Gallup for about a year and it was terrible. Horrible people and nothing to do. It always feels like you're about to be the victim of a crime.
Gallup is always a great place to visit that is both cultural and historical. There are many Native American artists, mostly Navajo, that commute from their home towns to Gallup to show off their silversmithing skills and other craft making skills. I myself personally enjoy going to the Gallup Fleamarket where I will get different foods or go gift searching. Gallup also has annual dances, such as powwows, and of course the Inter-Tribal Gallup Ceremonial Parade. Another thing that I can tell you about Gallup is that they have some of the best foods and restaurants.
Originally moving from Farmington, my experiences with Gallup, New Mexico have been rather poor. With the name's Gallup has received, its unfortunate that really being here just doesn't connect. Overall experiences with workers all around the city is terrible. They are almost always rude and provide no real customer service satisfaction. For what should be a tourist built town, it really doesn't add up. From poor sanitary to the thousands of potholes and constant broken traffic lights, it would seem Gallup looks for no change. In order to improve I highly suggest the influential people of Gallup ie. the mayor, new leadership is highly needed.
In Gallup it is a very diverse town with mostly Native Americans. It is a beautiful town with the great heritage of the Navajo it is one of the small towns that is welcoming. Living there almost my entire life has made me appreciate the culture and hospitality of the town. Lastly I would like to see something done about the homeless problem that can make the town seem like a bad place even though it isn't. Also the education and children do not have many opportunities to have fun or be a child the parks in the town are run down and some have even closed. Also they could create plans to clean up the town because it is very beautiful and had the beauty every where you go but the trash that some people leave or do not dispose of properly makes it seem like a poor town that doesn't care about it's people.
I would like to see more shops that are in the bigger cities come to our city instead of having to travel so far.
I got stranded when my car broke down for 4 days. No rental car to be had. I mean really stranded. The people are not friendly and they have a serious drug and alcohol problem in this town. Bars on the windows of the downtown and razor wire at the car dealership.They need to get somebody running the city that knows how to run a city. This is without a doubt the worst place I have been since Tijuana Mexico. I don’t know what the answer is and I’m sure there’s some fine people here but somethings got a change.
I have no intentions of ever going back.

I have lived in Gallup my whole life. My experiences in Gallup have helped me notice what I want to change in my community. There should be more opportunities for artist and job seeking developments. Gallup is known for the diversity of cultures and appreciating each of them. Gallup is lacking youth related organizations.
I love my hometown, It is very small a tight community. With lots of different cultures and fun event that are always going on and are kid friendly.
One of the must see places in Gallup, NM is the Red Rocks, the rocks and the sand have that rich red color, it's amazing and beautiful at the same time, especially when the sunrise and sunset shine against it.
I love the scenery around here. Its very beautiful and cultural. Also bunch of nice people here and great places to eat. One thing i would change is how these young teenagers graffiti places making the town look bad.
The landscape is beautiful, great potential, but the people are often rude. The streets are not well kept and sadly their are many intoxicated and homeless people around most stores. The small town feel can be fun for a while but you very quickly run out of things to do. Amazing sunsets.
Very Impoverished city, rife with racism and crime, but still maintains a small town feel. Would be better with improved advancement opportunities and investment in the local communities.
Gallup has many tasteful local cuisines. The locals are friendly. I love the yearly intertribal ceremonial dances and rodeos. I think the only thing to change is the amount of public intoxication the town has to deal with on a daily basis.
I've li ed in Gallup my who love life. We are well know for our Green chili, most of all for the Galkup, Inter-Tribal Ceremony that happens every August of each year.
Gallup is a small community, I enjoy that it is slow paced and it is family oriented.I don't like that there is not alot of opportunities for younger people.
It is a nice small town. For me it is too small and it is very hard to find a job out here. I plan to move to a bigger city like Albuquerque to find a job and better my chances.
