Moving to Las Cruces soon

I am moving to Las Cruces in a couple of weeks for a job. I will be working in Alamogordo and commuting back and forth. Money really isn't an issue as long as I can find what is ideal for me.

I am a young, professional 22 year old guy;

Looking for somewhere


-On the North side of town (I believe Alamogordo is North of Las Cruces?)

-More green than desert

-Things to do in the area

I'm looking more for a residential type area.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

TA will most likely shut this thread down, as TA is not a relocation site.

You're probably better off posting to a site like City-Data.

You need to be on the East side of town, as Alamogordo is reached via US70 going East. There are several areas east of I-25 but south of US70 that would be good to go into. You didn't say whether you want a house or an apartment. Alamogordo is NE (but mainly East) of Las Cruces.

Ditto on City-Data.com Tripadvisor is for "vacationing."

You REALLY need to look at a map. A commute from Las Cruces to Alamogordo and back each day would be 132 miles! You would want to live in Alamogordo!!!!
