There is a lot of outdoor stuff to do, including hiking, biking, walking, ballooning, etc. Schools are not as good as other areas of the country, but the food and the weather cannot be beat. The cost of living is lower in Albuquerque than in other areas of the country.

The weather is incredible. I miss the Albuquerque skies.

I absolutely love Albuquerque, it has been my home for the past 9 years. Although in the desert south-west. Has excellent weather, wild winter with not too hot summers.

The weather, and the fact that it has excellent opportunities for those who love the mountains and the outdoors.
