Everything You Will Love About Albuquerque after Your Cross Country Move

Albuquerque might not be the first city that comes to your mind when you try to imagine the perfect place to live in. We are here to change that. Bear with us, and we can guarantee that by the end of this article, you will already be packing and moving to New Mexico. Here are some things we at Cross Country Moving Company are convinced you will love about Albuquerque.

The Surroundings

Albuquerque is located right next to the Sandia Mountains. No matter what neighborhood you are in, you will always be able to see and admire their slopes. A great thing about the Mountains is that they look completely different depending on the time of the day. Another big benefit of having a mountain in close vicinity is that, whenever you get tired of the warm desert weather in Albuquerque, you can go skiing. Don’t forget to pack your skiing equipment.

The Sunny Days

Albuquerque gets over three hundred sunny days a year. Forget all about rain, snow, and cold – if you are an outdoor person who enjoys warm weather, Albuquerque is the place for you. While it can get hot during the summer, most of the year the weather in Albuquerque is absolutely amazing. Did you know that sunshine is considered to be one of the most powerful natural antidepressants?
In addition, Albuquerque’s geographical position means that it is never endangered by a natural catastrophe. Whether you are looking to run away from Californian earthquakes, Arizonian monsoons, or Midwestern tornadoes, we promise you, Albuquerque is your new safe haven.

The Mixture of Big and Small

Albuquerque is large, but not too large. It is small, but not too small. Albuquerque is a little bit of everything. It has a well-developed nightlife, as well as plethora of shopping and entertainment options to choose from. Despite this, due to its scenery, it still has the small-town feel to it. Traffic jams in Albuquerque are a real rarity, and noise pollution is not a problem. When it comes to air pollution, Albuquerque is considered to be one of the least-polluted cities in the States.

The Super Low Prices

Albuquerque is pretty inexpensive. The reason for this might be the overall poverty problem in New Mexico. However, lower taxes and lower prices in general make life in Albuquerque much easier. This applies to gas prices and higher education as well!

Places of Interest

Albuquerque has a lot of attractions which are interesting both to the tourists and to the city’s residents as well. Since the list of the important places to visit in Albuquerque could easily be endless, we have put together some of those which we deemed most important.
The Albuquerque Museum  offers year-round exhibitions of art pieces, as well as numerous events for visitors of all ages and interests.
The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center  is a place where you can experience and learn about the tradition of the Pueblo Indians who resided in the area long before the Europeans came.
The KiMo Theatre  is not your typical theatre - what sets it apart is the exquisite architecture of its building - a prime example of the mixture between Art Deco and the traditional Pueblo style.
The Church of San Felipe de Neri  is over three hundred years old. It is a Catholic church with a school and a museum.

The Culture

The culture of Albuquerque is a mixture of a little bit of everything. Native Americans, Mexicans, Hispanic, and white people all live in a cultural harmony which results in marvelous food you cannot expect to see anywhere else, breathtaking arts and crafts, and appealing music.

The River

Rio Grande really is grand. Aside from the river itself, Albuquerque locals have the opportunity to enjoy a 16 mile long biking and hiking trail, as well as the ABQ Bio Park Botanic Garden. If you enjoy seeing wild animals in their natural habitat, this is the place for you. Bald eagles, great blue herons, and many other animals roam this area freely. Make sure you enjoy them from far away. Do not disturb or scare them. Hunting is not allowed, unless in accordance with New Mexico Game and Fish. If you enjoy water activities, you can rent a kayak or float on the river. Keep in mind that during the summer, the water in the river is scarce, so if you are planning on enjoying water activities once you move, do so during the winter. To find out more about the numerous activities you may enjoy at the river, visit the official website of the city of Albuquerque here .

The Beer

While Albuquerque is not a city generally known for its beer, it has a growing local brewing industry that doesn’t fail to amaze. Our suggestion is to visit La Cumbre , a brewery whose beers have already won some major prizes. Yet another great brewery is Marble Brewery  where you will get a chance to try all kinds of beers and enjoy live music.

The Balloon Fiesta

One of the great things that the Albuquerque weather allows is the largest hot air balloon festival in the world. The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is held for nine days every year. Each year, over five hundred hot air balloons take off, filling the sky.

Route 66

This article would be incomplete without mentioning the historical Route 66, now Central Avenue in Albuquerque. This famous route guides tourists through the city, from the volcanoes in the west, through the Old Town and ABQ Downtown, to the University of New Mexico and beyond. If you are interested in taking the Route 66 tour, which includes visits to the Historic Nob Hill District, University of New Mexico, Downtown, Alvarado Transportation Center, Crossroads Mall, KiMo Theatre and Art Gallery and the Historic old town, click here .

The Name

Say Albuquerque. Doesn’t it feel nice slipping off your tongue? Don’t worry, even the Albuquerqueans find it very hard to spell. Don’t be surprised if you notice people simply writing ABQ instead.
