Overall, this city has been a bit rough for me and my family. I titled this review in the way that I did to let folks know how to enjoy Las Vegas, New Mexico to the best of their ability. Living in Las Vegas, I have seen the crime rate go down although it still ranks pretty high.
The schools here are barely getting by, I mean the graduation rates are deplorable with many not even making it out of high school. I do commend the students at doing the best that they can, although times are not favorable to them.
There is plenty to do in and around the New Mexico Highlands University area. You can find many eateries, and lots of parks as well. All in all I think this town may be good for a single person, or either a family with older children. Give a visit, and you can see what Las Vegas has to offer you!
