5 Reasons to Relocate to Albuquerque
It might take a few tries to spell, but it doesn’t take long to fall in love with Albuquerque, New Mexico. As the most populous city in the state, Albuquerque has opportunities to fit every lifestyle. There’s a lot to consider when moving to a new city, from where to live, to how to prep for the weather, to what to do on the weekend. Check out our top 5 reasons why we love living and working in Albuquerque.
1. Sunshine on Your Shoulders
Studies show sunshine is linked to happiness. That means living in a city that boasts 310 days of sunshine all but guarantees you’ll be walking around with a smile on your face and a spring in your step.
2. Purrfectly Pet-Friendly
Have a special furry friend? Albuquerque is often ranked one of the most pet-friendly cities in the country. What’s better than exploring a brand new city on your own? Exploring with your pup.

3. Chowing Down in Town
While Albuquerque is known for its phenomenal Mexican food, the city has restaurants catering to all palates. From Mediterranean to Italian to barbeque, there’s no shortage of great food to pick from.
4. We Put the “Quirky” in Albuquerque
It’s hard to find a city with more character and charm than Albuquerque. Take for example our baseball team, the Albuquerque Isotopes, named after the fictional Springfield Isotopes from the TV series The Simpsons. We’re also home to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, a yearly, nine-day event featuring over 500 balloons. It is the largest hot air balloon festival in the world.
5. Say Hello to the Great Outdoors
Living in Albuquerque gives you the best of both worlds – big city amenities and proximity to nature. Whether you’re rafting down the Rio Grande, horseback riding in the high desert or hiking through the stunning Sandia Mountains, you’ll never run out of places to stretch your muscles and reconnect with nature.
