Albuquerque, affectionately known as ABQ, is a special city. Ok, it’s not nearly as glamorous as other cities like Los Angeles or New York; it’s not the tech hub that Seattle is or the nonstop party like Miami. Still, Albuquerque is a desert paradise that has a lot going for it. Living here is unlike living anywhere else.
Life is Better in Albuquerque
ABQ has something to offer everyone, from sports fans to foodies, to fitness nuts and history buffs. It’s a clean, safe city that is rapidly becoming a popular destination. Experience desert life like no other when you visit Albuquerque.
Those mountains, though. Nestled at the foot of the beautiful Sandia Mountains, ABQ has some of the most spectacular mountain views in the west. Their sheer beauty will captivate you, with their wide array of colors. Here you’ll gaze upon cool blues and greens and warm, inviting pinks and purples. Watch their colors change as the day progresses. Hike their many trails to stay fit and breathe that fresh mountain air.
Go without breaking the bank. ABQ is a shockingly affordable city, with a lower cost of living than other cities of its size. Goods and services cost less as well. This makes Albuquerque an attractive location for retirees and young professionals just starting out.
Breathe a little easier. ABQ has one of the country’s lowest rates of air pollution. Asthmatics and those suffering from allergies will benefit from the warm, dry mountain air.
Few natural disasters and endless sun New Mexico as a whole experiences very few natural disasters. Not prone to earthquakes or tsunamis, Albuquerque is a safer location than other major cities. Visitors will enjoy ABQ’s seemingly endless sun–on average, Albuquerque gets about 310 sunny days a year!
Stay fit. ABQ is one of the nation’s healthiest cities. Albuquerque has everything you need to get more active and stay in shape: over 22,000 acres of parks, miles (and miles) of trails leading up the mountains and great weather, which make it perfect for runners, cyclists, hikers and fitness enthusiasts of all ages.
If these things don’t make you want to run right out and move to Albuquerque, we’re not sure what will. Enjoy the conveniences of big city life with a small town feel that only ABQ can offer. The people are friendly, the weather is beautiful, the food is good, and the cost of living is low. What more could anyone want? Living in Albuquerque is great, and we think you’ll feel the same way.
