Review of Albuquerque, New Mexico


Good place to travel through, but don't stop
Star Rating - 1/26/2019
I've lived in the Albuquerque vicinity for 25 years and the city has really gone downhill. It's horrible now with rampant crime, both violent & property. People will steal anything and you really don't walk around town without being able to protect yourself. It's a shame because the city really has a lot to offer in the way of things to do (Bio Park, hiking trails, etc). However, knowing what I do now, I'd keep on driving through!

I 100% agree w/ Elaine. Don't stop in Albuquerque when you're traveling, and definitely don't move to Albuquerque. I unfortunately lived in ABQ 20 years, and finally relocated out-of-state in 2019. The HIGH CRIME is unbelievable.
