New Mexico Comments

Abq's not a city city; if you want real Albuquerque, go walk along the Rio Grande River in the North Valley, drive through the old, junky neighborhoods of the South Valley, or go hiking in the Sandia Mountains.
Albuquerque is unlike any other place in the world. I know cause I've seen it all from the Middle East to Europe and South America and if you never lived in Burque you will never know what its original culture is really like, so approach the locals with the upmost respect or please stay in Nob Hill. You will notice that most everyone from Albuquerque will have a slight Hispanic accent even non-Hispanics. They just have the city in there blood and the locals are a very proud people. Do enjoy the the weather because it really is the best in the world and feel free to order green chile on your Big Mac or pizza. If you plan on staying for a longer period it's a great place to get in shape lots of trails and great altitude, go for a run you'll see what I mean, visit the flea market, take a ride on the tram, eat at the fire house, eat some New Mexican food... or go to McDonalds in Barelas. Whatever you do you will leave Albuquerque enchanted.
Santa Fe is a very nice community. If you like the food from the area, you will enjoy it. If you have the time, take a run to Taos, especially if you like to shop or engage in winter sports.
Albuquerque doesn't have much going for it except for the area called Nob Hill around the U of New Mexico. A funky, hip enclave of intreresting stores, restaurants and galleries.
I live in Albuquerque. I would say that the best part of Albuquerque is Nob hill because it is pretty popular and it is lined with plenty of shops like the Buffalo Exchange where you can get good name brand clothes cheap, I would also recommend checking out downtown on the weekends. I also say to check out the zoo.
I liked Albuquerque.
