Thinking of retiring to the Southwest?
The Albuquerque area has moderate weather all year round!
Discover why so many people are relocating to Albuquerque, New Mexico. It could be the mild weather… spectacular views… rich culture…great outdoor activities… eclectic art scene… the University of New Mexico… and so many other wonderful things that can’t be listed here. But let’s come back to the weather. We have four distinct seasons (a must have for most people retiring from New England, New York or anywhere else on the East Coast!), and while it’s hot in the summer, it cools down at night. The leaves change in the Fall. The flowers bloom in the Spring. The sunsets are amazing in the monsoon season in August. The skies are a crystal clear blue the rest of the year. We have clean air (3rd cleanest city in the county according to the New York Times). There’s snow on the Sandia Mountains. There’s skiing on the Sandia Crest and of course in the mountains throughout the state. There’s hardly any humidity or rain — we have over 300 days of sunshine in Albuquerque! So take a trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico and find out why it’s one of the best places to retire! Plus, Santa Fe is just a quick train or car ride away!
It’s also a select area for vacation homes. Maybe you need to escape a frigid east coast winter. Albuquerque isn’t as warm as some locations, but it offers a much more mild winter than the northeast. If you’re tired of sweltering and humid summers, the Greater Albuquerque Area provides relief from those as well. Many people from hotter regions spend their summers in the Albuquerque Area. The 20-40 degree drop in temperature at night alone makes it worth the seasonal move.
