Las Cruces is 40 miles from El Paso so the two are linked by culture. Many things to drive to from Mountains to Hot Springs. This area has not been completely discovered so still has personality. Medical is good. Schools are good and fair. Community is very proud of College. Jobs are scarce. Primarily a retirement town with some white and blue collar. A balance. Nice weather except wind in March and April. Live tge laid back, friendly environment. Drivers a bit odd. Organ Mountains are sacred and now a Natiional Monument. Roads good, some traffic but not big city nightmare. Property crime is geographical. I feel safe in this town.
