Possibly relocating from NYC to Carlsbad, NM

by DianeM Online Now May 20, 2004 at 3:11 PM

I have made a major decision for change- going from a major city where I have lived all my life to a quiet town. Could a native, or long-time resident please give me some information only you would know- how safe is it - things for the average resident to do in the evening- are there other ethnic groups besides the heavy Mexican presence represented? Please give me as much information as you can to help me finalize what I hope will be my dream move. I am looking for a much more quiet, solid life where I hope people are pleasant and cheerful and stress is not an everyday feeling (after 9-11, it's really stressful here). Thank you one and all. Diane

    Diane, Yes, there are many Anglos in Carlsbad too. I'm not sure about the Mexican population (I'm from Albuquerque), but the Hispanic population is probably significant down there also. It's real safe, I think they just had their first murder in 10 years (or was that Portales??). Quite a few tourists down there too, with Carlsbad Caverns. Briana

    Did you make the move? If so, is Carlsbad what you expected?
