Moving to Las Cruces, NM—Southern New Mexico

The city of Las Cruces is the fastest-growing metro area in New Mexico and the second largest city in the state. It is also among the top 10 fastest-growing metro areas in the United States thanks to New Mexico State University and the White Sands Missile Range with their continuous expansion.

Spaceport America. One unique aspect of this area is the future development of space tourism, which will offer space travel to the general public. Living around Las Cruces, you’re likely to see and possibly be a part of the future development of aerospace as people soon begin to take mini ‘space’-vacations.

Climate. It’s almost always sunny and you can expect very little snowfall. The warm, arid climate and 350 days of sunshine annually supports a long growing season. The local agricultural scene produces a wide variety of peppers, including a famous green chile, and pecans are also popular. Living in Las Cruces, you can enjoy the local flavors by shopping at the Farmers and Crafts Market, or make your own with fresh, locally grown foods.

Go Solar. With all of that sunshine, homes in Las Cruces have ample opportunity to take advantage of solar energy, making energy costs more efficient overall so you can save or spend your hard-earned money elsewhere.

Relax. While sunny days make spending time outdoors a regular activity, you can also take advantage of the many vineyards and wine tasting rooms throughout the historic Mesilla Valley. Great for a weekend break, date night, or outing with friends, taste locally made wines or bring home a bottle or two for dinner.

Around Las Cruces. If you get the urge to visit a larger city, both El Paso, Texas and Juaréz, Mexico are less than an hour drive away. In Las Cruces, you can live in New Mexico and still conveniently visit, do business with, and explore Old Mexico.
