Los Alamos is not your typical small town. In fact, we’re quite unique. Founded during WWII as the home base for the Manhattan Project, Los Alamos continues to be a scientific and technology community to this day supporting Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and other high-tech startups.
Los Alamos, and its neighboring community White Rock, are the recipients of many major accolades including “best place to live in New Mexico,” “safest city in New Mexico,” “best place to raise a family in New Mexico,” “healthiest county in New Mexico,” and “best public high schools in New Mexico.” Los Alamos and White Rock were recognized as two of the “happiest small towns in America.”
When these attributes are combined with our stunning vistas of the Jemez and Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Los Alamos is certainly a one-of-a-kind place to live.
