Gallup is a very hard area to reside in and in short a lot needs to change. Many public schools and work environment is toxic and driven for money while students and low-income employees suffer
A small, lovely and diverse town riddled with native american culture within the city and surrounding areas.
I am Navajo woman from Gallup, New Mexico. What I love about Gallup is the amazing landscapes, hiking trails that are in Church Rock next to Gallup, and the number of activities that's held here. It is a small town but has many stores, also downtown has an aesthetic. Downtown has many traditional jewelry stores, crafting, places you can walk around and enjoy the scenery.
I love the old school small town feel of Gallup, New Mexico. It offers an opportunity to experience the culture of the wonderful Navajo people. There are many unique restaurants that are fun to try if you want to enjoy a taste of New Mexico. It offers a great opportunity to start a business and be successful. It would be nice to see the roads of Gallup fixed up because they aren't in great shape. Bring Route 66 back to when it was in it's prime.
I grew up in this town. I love this place and all the things I had access to. The flea market was always bustling with people and the parks were always clean; ready for kids to play in. There was always a town program for sports, which I was always a part of. Gallup helped me achieve being a state softball player. My family had to move away from Gallup due to there being no job options available to them that would keep a family of six afloat.
I like the Native American culture surrounding Gallup. There's not much to do and not many great restaurants.
I have lived here since I was five. Not a great pkace to raise kids. Medical services are very limited.
Gallup, New Mexico has the most toxic people in the U.S.A., not people that have moved there for work, the "insiders", those that have been there generationally and those who are their shills. It doesn't take long before you know who to avoid. I worked there for several years and right after I moved there my bosses mom was in the office and he introduced me to her and I politely said "Your son seems like a great guy" and she quipped "You better say that if you want to keep your job". Mind blowing rudeness, nepotism and graft, everywhere in town. Not to mention the hordes of drunks scattered in every gutter.
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.
Gallup is a small town I am born from. This town is well connected with other people because you know everyone in this town. I like the tourists that pass through town because they admire the jewelry we have in stores and our culture. One thing I would like to change about Gallup is adding more stores that are popular in other cities because they are building so many hotels when we need more stores to shop at. Another thing I would like to change is building homeless houses for the homeless is out town. In the winter time, homeless people are cold and starving when they are out on the streets on there own.
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.
