This Charming Community Might Just Be The Most Peaceful Place To Live In New Mexico

I'm an east coast girl living in a west coast world. I grew up in New England before moving to SoCal for several years. I then lived in NYC or a year before moving to AZ in 2009. I worked in the entertainment industry for many years of my adult life and have a deep love for photography, writing, and traveling around the U.S. as well as to far-flung locations around the world. Travel is my life and writing about it is a dream!
While cities like Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Las Cruces offer so much in terms of attractions, restaurants, shopping, and more, sometimes a bit of peace and quiet in our lives is necessary. The best places to find a slower pace of life are in the state’s small towns and communities. Whether you’re looking for a tranquil getaway or a peaceful place to live in New Mexico, Placitas may be the place for you.
