We have a shortage of apartment stock in Farmington. Although there are some new apartments, for the most part they are older and well worn. Homes are relatively expensive.

Like most of the Southwest, we're not here to entertain people. But if you want to put out a little effort, the scope of outdoor activities is unmatched here year round. Farmington is a little over an hour from the Colorado mountains, which will mean hiking, camping, skiing, white water kyaking and rafting, etc. Farmington itself boasts plenty of bike trails for mountain biking. If you're into motor sport, there are lots of motorcycle, sandrail and rock crawling opportunities. You can windsurf, fish, sail, or motorboat here. Lots of horse people here. We do have a symphony season, and a good performing arts community. Not large, but not second-rate either.

It's politically and socially pretty conservative. Quite a gap between the haves and the have-nots, which is probably more apparent in a smaller community than it is in a larger one. There are definitely racial tensions, but for the most part it's pretty much confined to the activists and politicos.

We have more than our share of ganstas, stupid criminals and junkies in my opinion, but there are also plenty of nice folks here to mitigate the nuisance.

Overall, not a bad place to start out.

Default Take me back to UT

I moved to Farmington 2 years ago fr Logan UT which is very close to where you are coming from. We moved here to be closer to family. I am not trying to be a downer but I miss Logan everyday. The scenery was nicer, the people were nicer, the crime was nonexistant. It was a HUGE culture shock and I grew up in NM. I would tell you to try to come and visit before you make such a move. I have grown to like this area but if I had the chance I would go back!!!

That is so crazy cause when I moved from Portales to Farmington I thought it was a hugh culture shock, they are like 2 different worlds.

I would be interested in info as well on rentals in the Aztec area, especially rural,
where there is some acreage and the opportunity to put in a raised bed garden,
and/or have some chickens and maybe dairy goat in the property. We would also
need to have pet friendly landlords, as we have 2 cats and a dog. Thanks so much!

Is this something that is totally out of the question in the Aztec area, or is it a
dream come true new life & home for me?

I can be emailed directly at Aztec_NM_Bound at yahoo.com

Thanks!

I think you could just order anything electronic from the web. I really like the responses to this thread. My idea of appropriate exercise after a day in the desert is to sit on a comfortable chair watching the setting sun with a cold bottle of Dos Equis (sp) in my hand.
Why would anyone want to leave the heat, humidity, hurricanes and humanity of South Florida to move to a dry, desolate, deserted place like Farmington?
