I grew up in Los Lunas. It's a very calm place to live compared to Albuquerque. They're are tons of people living here but the town feels so close knit that you'll know people from multiple families by accident. It has grown a lot since I was little and is still growing fast! The only thing I would change about Los lunas is the fact that there is hardly any activity locations and tons of food locations. It's a comfortable place to live.

Los Lunas is a growing community. It still has the small town feeling which I love. There are many community events that are free and full of fun. People know each other here, and help each other. Some fear change but change is good and is bringing more jobs to Los Lunas. As a person that drives 45 to an hour to Albuquerque, this excited me. Let's welcome change!
I have lived in Los Lunas, for pretty much my whole life. It is a small community getting bigger everyday. But I like the small town feel. Los Lunas always has stuff going on in the community for people family events, health fairs, job fairs, Holiday parades and events! Its awesome! I would love to see some more companies come to town, like a whole food or sprouts, maybe a mall and i feel that we could use a hospital!
