5. I live in Albuquerque

I love Albuquerque. I've lived/worked from Maine to Florida to California and points in between, in the nursing profession. When I retired on S.S. I returned to Albuquerque. First you've got the weather, and four seasons. Maybe not as noticeable as New England, but we have the warm summers with highs in the upper 80's and a month of 90's. And we have a cool or cold winter with lows in the 30's but highs in the 50's. Extremely low humidity; no sweaty summers.

Great public transit and a lower than national average cost of living. And I'll toss in the friendliness, which I credit to the sizable Hispanic population here. I think it's cultural; the friendliest place I've lived in the USA. It's a large city that doesn't feel like it.

And we have a GOP Mayor and Governor, both of whom I (as a progressive liberal) can agree with 80% of the time.

I can't really speak for the rest of the state other than I've traveled around it and enjoyed it and the people.
Albuquerque is a 'high desert', a mile high, so not HOT like Phoenix.

You might check City Data online for more info on Albuquerque and go the
Best Places for a good city to city comparison.

Feel free to ask me any questions.
