Alamogordo is a good safe town? Good for a family? Un-lock your doors type of town or?

I think it is a good town. It has a low crime rating and I don't hear about murders or stuff there. It is the kind of city you can walk out at night if you want. It is still a good idea to lock doors just to be sure, but Alamo is a pretty safe town. It is a family type of town.

Looking now. Thanks for a quick response. Small town, near a lake or mountains. Low crime, where would you start?

Bayfield meets all those - mountains, several lakes in the area, plus the schools are excellent and a low crime rating.

Default Alamogordo Area Pleasures

Hey Folks! I've already alluded to the joys of Alamogordo within other rooms. So now it's time to start an official Alamogordo room. One good way to start is by recommending where to eat.

Ed recommends the cafe within the county and city government area. The one I have in mind is where a lot of those folks go to breakfast. You may often go there when there are a bevy of police and sheriff personnel in uniform. So turn your hearing aid up or otherwise bend an ear to their shop talk. And the other government types usually sit at least three at a time. And they talk loud enough for anyone in the cafe to know what's going on. To eavesdrop on all these conversations, get there before 8:30am. After that, they are headed for their jobs.

Ed's Food Recommendation is biscuits & gravy over eggs over easy. To die for!

Well, that's just a start in your stay at Alamogordo.

Hi Harry O. I can't recall the name of the cafe. It is NOT within any govt center, per se. Sorry to inadvertently mislead you. Look for a cafe with an American flag in front. There's also a long wheelchair ramp in front. I think they sometimes fly the "Find POW/MIA" flag as well. Again, I don't recall the name of the cafe. Sorry. Here's an idea. Go into one of the govt blgs across the street and ask for directions and the name of this eatery.

There used to be a small cafe just around the corner from this big one. It was run by a foisty guy. He was bravely trying to compete. He was only open a few hours, from like 10am to 2pm. He finally had to close.

We encountered a very good Mexican cafe across from the main public library, which is a great place to hang out as well. The public library often has great books and magazines for sale. If you are lucky, you'll find a time when the library has old National Geographics for a dime each or give-aways.

I've got a really strange - or maybe not so strange - story to relate. Some years ago now, I stopped into a tiny cafe in the downtown area that's actually in the oldest retail area in the city. This cafe was one of those thin venues about 15 feet across. Could only accommodate two rows of seating. But it went the full length back.

So I happened to have on a T-shirt from a publication I free-lanced for. The waitress stared and me and declared harshly, "WHERE did you get that shirt?" I said that I wrote for the magazine, as a free-lancer. Then I noticed her name tag. It was a gal I had interviewed about a year ago!!! I think she worked for Readers Digest. She was a tall, thin lovely girl and we had a lovely talk. She had moved to Almgdo from back east because she had family here. Her brother owned an Italian restaurant on Indian Wells Blvd. What a small world! Something like six degrees of separation.

Skip ahead to when we were in Almgdo a few months ago. The restaurant is now closed. I can't recall what's in there. Actually, it had already changed hands as a cafe before that. After some inquiry I found out the girl was in an arts/theater group. But I never saw her again.

Good Morning, As I live in Carrizozo and there is little there, I do much of my shopping in Alamogordo. Lately have been visiting a small Thai restaurant on Texas just south of 10th. Think the name is "Nui" and it is next to an oriental grocery. They offer a nice array of dishes and will adapt the hotness to your taste. My only small compaint is there seems to be a different version of each dish depending on who is cooking but they have all been good so I just adapt to each day. Happy eating.
