Take a look at this list from Bosque School parent emeritus and Albuquerque real estate agent, Jill Levin, highlighting her top ten reasons to move to Albuquerque.
1. Sunshine! Albuquerque averages more than 300 days of sun every year, and with four distinct but mild seasons, it’s rarely too hot or too cold—at least not for long.
2. With all that beautiful weather, there are plenty of opportunities for Albuquerque families to spend time outdoors. Ranked as one of the best places to live for outdoor enthusiasts, almost 25% of the city is dedicated to outdoor recreation and activities.
3. Living in Albuquerque is affordable. In fact, Albuquerque offers one of the lowest costs of living among America’s most populated cities.
4. Albuquerque is one of the most diverse cities in the country. You’ll find this vibrant culture and heritage reflected in our many museums, cultural centers, art fairs, and music festivals. The National Hispanic Cultural Center alone hosts more than 700 cultural events annually.
5. Dining in Albuquerque is a satisfyingly unique experience. Mexican, Native American, and Spanish influences fuse to create incomparable dining experiences you won’t find anywhere but New Mexico. With some of the best chile grown worldwide, just be ready to answer the question, “Red, green, or Christmas?”

6. Whether you prefer the rural calm of the lush North Valley or a fun, eclectic downtown vibe, Albuquerque’s neighborhoods offer a little bit of everything. Old Town boasts centuries-old Pueblo-Spanish style architecture, neighborhoods in the Sandia foothills provide spectacular views of the city and Albuquerque’s famous sunsets, the Westside offers city-living with a suburban feel, and you can't beat trendy Nob Hill if you want the convenience of walking to some of the city's hottest restaurants and shops.
7. Business is booming in Albuquerque and employment opportunities are abundant. Netflix, Intel, Amazon, Facebook, Sandia National Labs, and General Mills are just a few of the major employers who call Albuquerque home. Science, technology, healthcare, education, and even the film industries are all thriving in New Mexico.
8. New Mexico’s dramatic southwest landscape is the stunning backdrop to a land steeped in centuries of history and culture. Taos Pueblo, Bandelier National Monument, Chaco Canyon, White Sands National Park, the Gila Cliff Dwellings, and many other historical sites are all within driving distance from Albuquerque, making a historical adventure as easy as getting in your car. 
9. For nine days in October, Albuquerque’s huge, blue skies are filled with a rainbow of color as hundreds of hot air balloons take flight during the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. The largest event of its kind, the annual Balloon Fiesta attracts tourists from all over the world, but those who call Albuquerque home are lucky enough to spot balloons in the sky all year round. 
10. You’ll never be bored living in Albuquerque—there’s always something to do. Cheer on our New Mexico United soccer team, pick up some fresh produce from a neighborhood growers’ market, check out our new food halls, hit the 18 at one of our award-winning golf courses, hop on the Rail Runner to Santa Fe, catch an Albuquerque Isotopes baseball game, get your adrenaline pumping at Cliff’s Amusement Park, or view the entire city from 10, 378-feet high on the Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway.
