Considering moving to Las Cruces . Any advice?

Hi ladies, I'm new to this board,. My DH is considering a new job position in Las Cruces. We live in Houston now, does anyone have any info about that area. I really appreciate it. We don't know anything about NM at all.

Thank you

    I end down in Cruces a few times a year for work. Cruces is more of a large town than a major metro area. COL is low, but then salaries in NM are low.

    Cruces is low deset, as opposed to high desert in Albuquerque or Santa Fe. It's hot in the summer, with no humidity.

    Most of the economy of Cruces is tourism, logistics/transportation, extractive industry or related to NMSU. It's showing up on a lot of "Best of" lists these days for entrepenuers or retirees. It's freaky how many new developments down there are marketed to retirees.

    As for NM, genwralizations don't hold for the state as a whole since we're so big (5th largest). The different areas in teh state are pretty distinct. One thing you can generalize is the multicultural aspect - Anglo, Spanish, Native America, Mexican, etc.
  • We move to Las Cruces just over a year ago. Prior to that we had lived in both Houston and Dallas. Like with any move there is an adjustment period and you'll have to learn to do without a few of the luxuries of a big city, no Gap here:) The pace of life is a little slower but everyone is generally very friendly and kind. The city is pretty clean. I feel like some of the local treasures make up for the lacking main stream stores/restaurants. I'm happy to share any other info. you might be curious about.
