Hey yinz guys, guess what? I’m moving to Albuquerque! Probably. Eventually. It may not be for another 20 years or so, but I’m pretty sure I’ll eventually call the largest city in New Mexico my home.
Of all the places I went on my 2009 summer road trip, Albuquerque was the one that surprised me most. I fell in love with the town and discovered why it’s one of the fastest-growing cities in the country.
The city boasts affordable housing, fantastic weather (330 days of sun per year, with small amounts of snow in the winter to keep things interesting), a large green movement and progressive atmosphere, a vibrant university neighborhood, surprisingly good nightlife, great nature (the Rio Grande River and Sandia Mountains), a nice amount of Mexican and Native American culture, and lots of good concerts (the city is on the road between Austin and L.A. so traveling bands play there a lot). Should I keep going?
Do you have a favorite city that you’re dying to live in someday?
