I live in Socorro and we really enjoy going to TorC to soak in the waters or to go antiquing. It's a quirky, yet charming little place. I was surprised Socorro did not make this list. Our drug problem is just awful. It's not a very pretty town. Our city council bows to the mayor who is just setting up his own life for when he retires. There's not a whole lot of pride going on here; no pride in mothers and fathers caring for their kids, no pride in homes, no pride in school life... G*d bless the people that try out here. There's more scuzzy people that ruin it for everyone else than there are quality people that try to make Socorro nice.
