Rio Rancho, NM Is A Jewel In The Desert

I moved to Rio Rancho, NM five years ago. I must say that the entire area is impressive and I enjoy the city immensely. It is located in a beautiful area, and there are plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation. There are plenty of hiking trails in the nearby volcanoes, and several parks are within an easy drive. The Bosque is a short ride away and is filled with green spaces and parks. The schools are some of the best in the country, and there are plenty of well paying jobs in the technology industry. The best thing that I like about Rio Rancho is the environment and temperature. This city is in the middle of the desert, and the summers are warm and sunny. The winter is sunny too, and there is hardly any snow. The mountains are only a short drive away, and this provides a great chance to go skiing, ride a tram to the top of Sandia Peak or have a meal at the High Finance restaurant. The schools are another draw that interested me in Rio Rancho. I was living in Albuquerque, and I was thinking about the best place to send my kids for their education. Rio Rancho schools regularly rank as some of the best in the country and provide the latest technology for their students. Intel is located nearby and provides the community with support in a number of ways. The city is a short drive away, but Rio Rancho is more relaxed and does not have any issues with crime. Residents can be in Albuquerque in less than 20 minutes. This city has ample opportunities to enjoy great restaurants and shopping. Colleges and universities are also located conveniently close, and health care is excellent. Residents are sure to love the community feel of the area.
