I transplanted here from the Northwest (North-WET) about 6 weeks ago and am loving every minute of it.  The people I've met have been friendly and helpful, it's easy to get around by bus and by bike (and by foot), and there are tons of fun things to do!

Stella, Carmen, thank you both for your responses. I will definitely check out I think I would miss green grass and trees, but the weather here in Indy has become unbearable for me and my wife. Awesome sunny weather, low humidity, no bugs........I think I could definitely get used to ABQ!! And, yes, just the views I've seen in pictures are enough to make my jaw drop. I understand why those ladies don't want anyone to move there. It's just an awesome place!!

I talked to two ladies the other day who told me that when people ask them how they like Albuquerque,, they respond with a negative exaggeration, only because they don't want more people coming here. I had to laugh about it. They really do love it here ! I could never do that, I'm too honest.

I am a Minnesota native, born and raised there. Moved to Albuquerque in Nov. 2004, and we love it here! To us this is Paradise compared to living up North. Coming here from a Northern State is a culture adjustment. You trade in some of your grass and water and high humidity for fabulous weather! Can you handle that? You can actually sit outside without getting bug bit! ( unless you're near water). We live on the SW corner of town and we get less moisture than the foothills area. We can see the gorgeous city lights from here......acres and acres of golden shimmering twinkling lights! Not generally seen in the main or east part of town. They are totally intoxicating ! I never get tired of seeing them, along with the gorgeous Mountain views and Paradise weather.

Hey David, is the website of the Weekly Alibi, the local print alt. weekly. Each fall, as the UNM student body is incoming, they publish a neighborhood guide, so you might check last year's.

Awesome! I wasn't expecting such a quick response. Thank you so much for the info. I had read a lot about living north of the city being good for families. I really need to get myself out there to check it out. Maybe I will come during the next balloon festival! Do you know any key websites other than DCF I should be checking out? Good luck to you and your family. Enjoy ABQ!!!
