The Thanksgiving holiday is almost upon us and we couldn't help but be inspired by a recent feature on Albuquerque at movebuddha.com
The article called "38 Tips on Moving to Albuquerque, NM: Relocation Guide." highlights the good, and not so positive, aspects of living in the city, which any guide worth its salt should do, of course. Overwhelmingly, however, ABQ comes over as the wonderful place we already know it to be.
All this has caused us to pause and be thankful at this time for so many great aspects of living in this area:
- What a way view the world! - the metropolitan area with the highest elevation in the United States.
- Brief and relatively mild winters and tolerable summer heat.
- Fabulous experiences such as the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.
- Endless outdoor possibilities at wonderful places like Carlsbad Caverns National Park, Gila Cliff Dwellings or Jemez Springs.
- The ever-expanding University of New Mexico.
- The relatively very reasonable living costs.
- The character of each of Albuquerque's 11 neighborhoods.
- Our developing public transportation system.
- The ABQ Ride Paratransit door-to-door service.
- Over 400 miles of bike lanes.
- Historic Nob Hill.
- The amazing International Balloon Fiesta.
- A growing number of great nightlife venues.
- Diverse and fabulous eating out options.
- New business arrivals such as Facebook in Los Lunas.
- A vibrant real estate market throughout 2016 to date.
We could, of course, go on and on, but it's nice to reflect that there are so many great things that we can genuinely be thankful for at this wonderful time of the year.
Can we also take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in our blog and to wish you and your family the very happiest Thanksgiving.
