Facts about Los Alamos

In a study conducted by American City Business Journals, Los Alamos County topped the list as the best place to live in America in terms of quality of life. This was attributed to the high levels of job stability, income and education of Los Alamos residents, many of whom are employed as scientists and engineers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The county has one of the highest number of PhDs per capita. Other factors contributing to Los Alamos's high quality-of-life index were the access to affordable housing and short commuting times.

Los Alamos Sport Activities
Los Alamos sits at more than 7,200 feet above sea level, spans four mesas and five canyons, and offers visitors a host of both outdoor and indoor activities all year long! To the east, Bandelier National Monument has ancient Anasazi cliff dwellings, petroglyphs and two perfect trails carved out for cross-country skiing or snowshoeing during daylight hours. Visitors are invited to camp overnight at Bandelier. To the west is Valles Caldera National Preserve, one of the world’s most significant “super volcanoes” that blew its top about 50,000 years ago, creating an 89,000-acre volcanic caldera that becomes a snow-covered playground for all.

In addition to the vertical trails offered at the Pajarito Mountain Ski Area, Los Alamos offers cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and hiking. For those who enjoy Ice Skating, the county’s outdoor ice skating rink — the state’s only refrigerated, uncovered outdoor ice rink — stays open to the public (weather permitting) November through February. learn more about Los Alamos Skating Rink.
