When we retire in about 5 years, we will be moving. My wife has some requirements:

1) Low humidity
2) Not too cold or too much snow
3) Large enough to be able to find what you want w/o driving 50 miles
4) Affordable
5) Plenty of sunshine

Albuquerque was the only place we could think of to meet her requirements. Anyone know of other places meeting the above?

She grew up in Orange County California. I grew up in rural Arkansas (town of 700) with plenty of green grass & trees. I hope I could adjust to something different.

Hmmm if you were flexible on the money I'd say San Diego. Other then that I can't really think of anything.

I guess you gotta define "affordable." =)

What about the Central Coast, California?

Yep, Albuquerque or El Paso would easily be your best bets.

I'd personally prefer to live in Albuquerque, but El Paso could fit your needs too.

I take it that the OP is asking about general cities overall...not limited to just the State of NM.
