Los Alamos Reviews

Los Alamos was a great town to grow up in and would be a good place to work and raise a family. However, there are not a lot of 20-somethings in the town or a lot for people that age to do. The access to the mountains is probably the greatest thing Los Alamos has to offer! That and the Bathtub Row Brewery.
Review Los Alamos
Los Alamos is safe, beautiful, and charming. It has a great environment with plenty of outdoor activities. However, it lacks in places to eat and entertainment.
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.
