Is Albuquerque a town where I'll need a car to get around?
Albuquerque has a great public bus service. Very modern and extensive. But like most of New Mexico, things can be very spread out so most people want to have a car. You could get by without one but don't get in a big hurry.
My 27 year old son is moving to Albuquerque and looking for a nice apartment in a young professional neighborhood. Need recommendations. Heard Nob Hill and EDo district nice. Safe and nice. Any help?
Nob Hill is a nice place to live. It is near the University of New Mexico and about four miles from Downtown Albuquerque. The shops, restaurants, bars and galleries draw visitors from all parts of the city. It is a good place for young professionals in Albuquerque to live safely but still enjoy citylife.
