I came here 20 years ago, thinking we'd be here about 3 years, but it's been a great place to raise a family, and now we've moved our retired parents and other family members into the community! The altitude can be tough for those coming from sea level, but other than that it's a fantastic place. Concerts every Friday night (free) at local parks, parades, art events, a craft brewing cooperative, great neighbors, trails, skiing, it's a super area and it's welcoming and visually appealing. It helps that it has a great climate and good schools, too.

Considering our Justice center is in the middle of town and we are practically a government funded town, the crime is very minute and the police are very quick to respond to any sort of suspicious behavior and in keeping everyone safe.
I have lived in Los Alamos my whole life and have also traveled to other areas in the U.S. and I can honestly say Los Alamos is one of the best places that anyone can live in. The crime is low and it is a very safe and trustworthy town. The atmosphere is driven by the busy people who work at the Laboratory and there are a lot of intelligent people here who are working on various technologies to better the future.
