Guide for moving to Albuquerque, NM

Why move to Albuquerque?

Geography. Albuquerque straddles the Rio Grande River in the upper Chihuahua Desert. The elevation level varies in the city from 4,900 feet above sea level to 6,700 feet above sea level. To the east are the Sandia and Manzano mountains, and to the west are several volcanic cones that are the beginning of high plateau country. Both mountains provide endless outdoor activities, from hiking, camping, and hang gliding.

Weather. The weather is dry and warm. The summer highs average temperatures in the 90s, and winter averages are mild in the 40s. Albuquerque experiences over 275 days of sunshine annually, so be sure to pack the sunscreen! This region is also known for very low humidity. Because of the warm weather and low humidity, it is important to stay hydrated during the summer months.

Entertainment. Albuquerque is a fun place to live! You can experience world-class art as Albuquerque was ranked AmericanStyle Magazine’s seventh top art destination in the country. There are art markets, galleries, museums, theaters, along with many artisans creating masterpieces in pottery, jewelry, tinwork and other unique mediums. If you like to play outside, all that sunshine makes Albuquerque a great place to live! You can bike, hike, ski, snowboard, golf, bird watch, raft, canoe, or do just about any outdoor activity your heart desires. If you prefer to be a spectator, Albuquerque is home to the Isotopes AAA baseball team (affiliate to the LA Dodgers, and named after an episode of “The Simpsons”), college sports from the University of New Mexico, auto racing at the Sandia Motor Speedway, and BMX racing at Duke City BMX.

Ballooning. One of the highlights of life in Albuquerque is the opportunity to take to the skies! Albuquerque is the Hot Air Balloon Capital of the World. There are companies that can take you up on a ride, or you can enjoy the world’s largest hot air balloon festival in October! It is the most photographed event in the world. You can also visit the Albuquerque International Balloon Museum to learn all about the history, science and culture of ballooning.

Cuisine. There are so many culinary specialties that you can find in this region that you better prepare your taste buds for an adventure! Chefs here blend Native American foods with European and Mexican flavors to create unique New Mexican Cuisine. You will also be asked “Red or green?” frequently, as they are asking about your preference for chile (both options are popular here)! And here’s an insider tip: to locals, it is just “green chile” not “green chile sauce.” Call it this to not sound like a tourist. There are also local wineries and many food festivals, along with Farmer’s Markets to visit.

Education. If you are moving to Albuquerque with children, they will attend school with the Albuquerque Public School system. This is a very large system with over 90,000 students in 136 schools! There are also several private and charter schools to choose from. For higher education, you have several options, including the largest institution in the state, the University of New Mexico. You can be a “Lobo” (a wolf) and be a student in one of their 215 degree programs.
