Los Alamos Reviews

All Categories
All year round the weather is pretty great. In the summer it's warm and there are rain showers. In the fall, the weather isn't too hot or too cold. In the winter, sometimes there is snow and other times not so much. In the spring though, there is a ton of wind and it is freezing. Spring is hands down the worst season here.

All of the local businesses have neat stuff that you can't get anywhere else,but it is all overpriced.
The outdoors are really pretty here during the summer and there are a lot of historical places to look at but that is about all there is to do around here.
