Would love to, trying to plan a Christmas or early summer visit to Taos - like the look of Taos as a possible relocation area.

Santa Fe amazing too.

Taos definitely has its own charm. The Christmas traditions in northern NM are special.There are winter ceremonies in the pueblos, too: deer dances, sometimes a buffalo dance. Let us know if you do manage a visit.

My wife and I are in SF right now on a retirement scouting trip. I have spent a fair amount of time in NM, but never in SF. We did a bunch of pre-trip research, but there is nothing like "boots on the ground" to see if a particular place is for you. We have a 10AM meeting this morning with a realtor who should be able to get us started.

How has your "on the ground" experience been, so far?

Well...today we checked out a few areas and were pleasantly surprised by one and a bit disappointed with another. We found Rancho Viejo to be nice and its mid-tier fits our budget. The lower tier models weren't bad...just a bit smaller than we are looking for. On the other hand, my wife was disappointed with the Eldorado area. There are some really nice places out there, but also a lot of places that seemed a bit "unkempt." We are staying at a B&B off of Don Gaspar and really like that area, but we're probably priced out of anything around there. With my admittedly very short time here so far, I'm finding that I like SF overall. We'll be here until mid next week so we'll see if I still feel the same then.

Tomorrow we're off to the outlying areas....Glorieta, Pecos, probably as far as Las Vegas....to see if any of those areas bear a closer look.
