Pros: Great outdoors and great pay.
Cons: Lousy dining and very little shopping
This is a wonderful place to live and work IF you are not a die hard city dweller. It is a long way out of Santa Fe to the Lab and there are no top quality restaurants in Los Alamos, I'm a steak guy from Texas and there are no good steaks to be found. What's here are mediocre at best and all over priced. The outdoors, outdoor entertainment, hiking and natural beauty here are breathtaking.
Given an opportunity to come here, you must give it a look. The public schools are incredible and the weather is fairly cool in the summer.
