Nestled in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains, Placitas is one of Money Magazine’s “100 best places to live.” It displays some of the most impressive views of the region’s mesas and mountains, and residents like it this way. Most properties are 1 or more acres and have custom homes that blend with the natural scenery. Residents enjoy stargazing, a variety of hiking trails and parks, a winery, and restaurants, as well as flourishing artistic culture which supports both art and music festivals. Placitas is a small town with a beautiful southwestern feel that seems far away from the hectic life of the big city but is actually just seventeen miles northeast of Albuquerque and twelve miles east of Rio Rancho. Residents have easy access to all the amenities and conveniences of a modern metropolitan area – though bordered by a national forest, Placitas is only 30 minutes from Sunport, the Albuquerque International Airport. In Placitas, you can “live among the stars, step away, and step above.”
