Information You Can UseBy BeckyInTexasThis book is formatted with chapters using the same style so whether you are considering relocating to Rio Rancho or Taos, you can quickly locate the information you seek for each city. It provides the reasons each city was selected (recreation, museums, annual events, etc.), then goes into the expected weather conditions, followed by rental/purchasing of homes and lastly medical services. The "whole enchilada".This is an exceptional book and one that we used to plan our vacation touring
New Mexico from Las Cruces to Santa Fe. We spent a day driving through the Gila Wilderness from Silver City to Socorro. Drove past the VLA (Very Large Array) radio observatory that was featured in the movie "Contact". Came home with some spectacular photos of this area, and only because we took this book with us. The information was extremely helpful to us, and I'm sure it will be for any reader seriously considering relocating to the "Land of Enchantment".0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. A Thoughtful Introduction for RelocatorsBy M. Paul HolsingerThis little text is a nicely done introduction to the state of New Mexico for anyone considering relocating to the Land if Enchantment to spend their retirement years. Each city and town receives at least a careful, reasonably upto-date discussion of its pros and cons as a place for persons to live or even work part-time. Certainly no-one would want to make this book their only resource but Burbank offers numerous other sources for many of the major locales which compliment the existing text. RNM is well-written and worth the time to study carefully. If there is a "problem'" it is that no book of this kind can possibly be kept absolutely current. Any study of this nature more than a year or two old runs the risk of becoming out-of-date and, indeed, there are some facts here which need updating. Still, anyone who is seriously considering New Mexico as a place to live in their so-called "golden years" would be well-advised to get a copy of the latest edition of Retirement New Mexico. It is THE starting point for any possible relocator.0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Explains the benefits of New Mexico retirement.By GBSI like the way the author writes.
