Generally, in the four years that I have lived in Carlsbad, New Mexico, it’s a pretty decent place to live. On one hand, it is a small town that finds itself quite far from big cities. This can be a problem when looking at options for entertainment and shopping. Outside of the caverns the only thing I think it’s worth noting is that the town is filled with a diverse and friendly population. The oilfield, mining and Hispanic cultures are mainstays of the town. As a result the city has been growing for some time now, and I don’t think anyone who wants to move here would have d a problem looking for work. The oilfield is a major employer here. That said, if you have a family, I would recommend somewhere else. On the bases of the school system being okay and the amenities we have for younger folk may not be what dreams are may of, but for indivuals it’s a nice town with opportunity for growth and travel.
