I agree about Las Cruces ...my favorite place in NM ...though you might want to check out Deming ....housing is cheaper ....also Alamogordo is very good too ...not as much nite life maybe ....but you can always go to El Paso (or Juarez) for that ...

Another vote for Las Cruces with El Paso my second choice. We did get a few below 20 degree nights this winter, but it warms up so nicely (and quickly) during the day, I hardly noticed. LC is centrally located for all sorts of fun stuff, has good shopping (Target, Kohl's, etc.) Also, though you didn't mention how old you are, the Mesilla Valley Mall has all of the stores that my granddaughter can't live without - Hollister, PacSun, Journey's, Hot Topic (her favorite), etc. I know it's not all about the shopping, but that really did play a large role in my decision to move here. Oh, and Starbuck's. There are some great restaurants near the university and a lot of the big music acts will play either in El Paso or here (Linkin Park, Jimmy Eat World and Paramore are in El Paso soon, Seether and Flyleaf are going to be at the Pan American Center at NMSU).
On a more serious note, the LC library lets you take 30 items out at one time and has a really good collection, there is a ton of cool history to learn about both here, in El Paso and the surrounding areas and, if you are interested in space stuff, this is definitely the place to be.
I know a lot of people talk about the crime here. I think they do it because they want to keep this lovely city to themselves. I lived in New York City (Manhattan, Brooklyn) and Northern New Jersey (not far from Newark) for a long time. Every day and night I heard police sirens and car alarms and the like. The newspapers were full of terrible things. Of course, there is some crime here, as there is everywhere, but, compared to the Northeast and other parts of the country, it is really pretty safe here.
Good luck with your search.

Hi, I am selling a home in Vado, New Mexico 12 miles from Las Cruces, NM does have night life. Dont know what your price range is? Our place has 2.5 acres and you can have horses. Very beautiful desert area, quiet, very very safe. Ive live here by myself for nine years. Very little snow, about 2 months of cold weather not severe.

I moved here in fall 07, and I'm now ready to leave. It's boring here, and super boring if you're under the age of 40. The people here are very dumb annoying also...




PS: Green chili sucks!

He states it's boring here. I guess he won't be too bored (He's moving to California) as they said on the CBS Evening News last night that there are 80,000 hard core gang members just in Los Angeles alone .

Los Angeles County alone has over 4x the population of New Mexico. If it went off on it's own, it would be the 9th most populated state.
