Living in Las Cruces NM

Las Cruces is a great place to do business and the quality of life is outstanding. Our quality of life includes a great climate. Residents and visitors can relax free from the worry of natural disasters like hurricanes, subzero weather, mud slides, tornados, high humidity and all of Mother Nature’s other battles.

There is much to do in the Las Cruces area with outstanding art and cultural opportunities, great golf courses and mountains and wilderness to explore. All of this lies within the backdrop of the beautiful state of New Mexico with Santa Fe only five hours away by auto and Albuquerque only four hours away.

Ruidoso and Cloudcroft, two fine mountain resort communities, are two hours and one-and-a-half hours away, respectively. We have horse racing and casinos close by in Sunland Park and Ruidoso.

Our community is blessed with New Mexico State University and White Sands Missile Range to provide a very stable economic base along with the agriculture along the Rio Grande Valley.

Las Cruces is a clean community with great parks and youth activities and a strong Las Cruces Public School System.

Quality housing is plentiful and very affordable.

The Greater Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce is working hard to serve the business community and the overall community. Our job is to preserve the outstanding business climate and to promote orderly managed growth to keep our economy vibrant.

We are on the move and invite you to see the Las Cruces area for yourself. You will want to be a resident and permanent part of this great community.
