    Finding Apartments for Rent in Albuquerque, NM

    If you’re looking for apartments for rent in Albuquerque, you’re in good company; more and more people are discovering the many perks of this historic city and packing up for a move to the Southwest. From scenic views and comfortable weather to diverse, friendly communities and delicious, authentic cuisine, there’s no shortage of reasons to move to Albuquerque. But the city’s affordable housing market is perhaps its best-kept secret; young professionals and retirees alike can choose from a variety of affordable apartments in Albuquerque.

    If you’re attending school in Albuquerque, there are plenty of Albuquerque apartments within walking distance from one or both of its two main college campuses: the University of New Mexico in the center of the city, and Central New Mexico Community College, which lies just a few blocks to the south. The farther you get from the Rio Grande, the lower your rent will likely be. Every income level and age group is well-represented in Albuquerque, but its wealthier residents tend to gravitate toward the river, which yields plenty of rich farmland and gorgeous, untouched scenery.

    Depending on what brings you to Albuquerque—raising a family, starting a new career, getting an education, or just looking for a change—there’s definitely a neighborhood perfect for you.

    Top Neighborhoods in Albuquerque, NM

    The Rio Grande splits Albuquerque down the middle, but its neighborhoods aren't quite so black-and-white. Albuquerque residents enjoy seamless transitions from rural to urban and eccentric to sophisticated, with the same carefree New Mexico spirit filling every last bit of it.

    If you’ll be decorating your new digs with offbeat, eclectic décor, you might want to browse the apartments in Nob Hill. This unique district in the heart of the city is great for walking, and its neighborhoods are brimming with students, artists, intellectuals, and professionals who can’t get enough of its one-of-a-kind architecture, intimate bars, and unique art galleries.

    If your budget isn't quite so tight, apartments in the foothills and North Valley offer more upscale living. Old, grand houses pepper the riverside landscapes, especially on Rio Grande Boulevard, where lots are big enough for vineyards, farms, and horse stables.

    To get better acquainted with nature, find apartments near Albuquerque’s western limits. Jackrabbit sightings are common with the Cibola National Forest just a few miles away, and you can enjoy trails for hikers, bikers and horseback riders. This less-developed region of Albuquerque offers fantastic views of the city, while preservation regulations make sure that the view out your apartment window will be very similar to early pioneers’ first glimpses at the New Mexico landscape.

    Cultural Attractions in Albuquerque, NM

    If you love to embrace the great outdoors, step back in time to relive historic moments, or enjoy great art, you’re in luck! Albuquerque’s long, storied history and gorgeous landscapes have contributed to its one-of-a-kind culture, and no matter where you live, there’s a good chance your apartment will be close to one of Albuquerque’s many cultural attractions.

    One of Albuquerque’s biggest claims to fame is its annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the world’s largest hot air balloon festival. Residents who aren't lucky enough to live in apartments near Balloon Fiesta Park can take advantage of its convenient park & ride option, which buses visitors in from both the East Side and West Side of Albuquerque.

    If you want an apartment near a much bigger kind of park, head west toward the fifty-two-acre ABQ BioPark and Botanic Garden. Enjoy the blooming flowers and plants in its iconic glass conservatory, stroll through the relaxing Sasebo Japanese Garden, or get up close to goats, horses, pigs, sheep, and chickens at the park’s Heritage Farm. And to really impress the kids, taken them to the Children’s Fantasy Garden, where they can cross a moat and enter through a castle into a garden of gigantic acts, pumpkins, potatoes, bees, and more.

    To truly appreciate your new hometown’s place in history, find an apartment near Albuquerque’s historic Old Town district, where many homes are on the National Register of Historic Places. There’s live weekend entertainment throughout the summer in Old Town Plaza, and some of the city’s best shopping too.

    If you plan to turn one of your apartment’s extra bedrooms into an art studio, then the East Side of town is definitely for you. That’s where the New Mexico Arts and Crafts Fair has taken place every year since 1961. Renters who live near the New Mexico State Fairgrounds get to enjoy year-round concerts, fairs, festivals, and more, but none are as prestigious as this juried art show, which is open only to New Mexico artists and craftspeople. Maybe you can even set your sights on one of the festival’s big prizes, which honor the best paintings, drawings, photography, digital art, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture precious and semi-precious jewelry, wood, metal, and glass!

    Dining in Albuquerque, NM

    No matter where you go in Albuquerque, you’re bound to run into an award-winning restaurant or café with completely authentic local cuisine. New Mexico is serious about its traditional food, too: it even has its own state cookie, the biscochito! If you want to pass as a local while dining out, ask your server for “Christmas”; that means you want to try both green and red chile with your meal. Chile is a New Mexico staple, and no one does it better than Albuquerque.

    Just like the city itself, Albuquerque cuisine is a medley of hundreds of years of Mexican, European, and Native American influences. There’s even a fusion café, the Pueblo Harvest Café, within the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Old Town. Find Native American, Mexican, and Southwest fare on the mouthwatering menu, which includes frybread, cornmeal pancakes, blue corn onion rings, macaroni and cheese with chicken and green chile sauce, and even the Tewa Taco, which offers pueblo beans and beef on frybread with – what else? – chile.

    El Pinto is another local favorite; stock your new Albuquerque apartment with some of the homemade salsa and chile sauce that they sell on site, or stop by after work to unwind at their Tequila Bar. You won’t forget you have an apartment in the desert with more than 160 different tequilas – including its exclusive Double Barrel Reposado –and some of the world’s best agave nectar. They also have live music on an outdoor patio and drink specials throughout the entire Balloon Fiesta season.

    Don’t be intimidated by the cuisine if you don’t eat animal products; Albuquerque is so agriculturally rich that it’s very easy to find vegetarian and vegan options. Most people associate vegan restaurants with giant cities like San Francisco and New York City, so you’ll be pleasantly surprised when you wind up in an apartment near restaurants that cater exclusively to vegans. Loving Vegan offers Asian fusion selections that include vegan versions of lobster, salmon, tuna, shrimp, crab, and eel sauce. Pick a Nob Hill apartment to be close to Thai Vegan, which also has a location in Osuna, or try Annapurna’s World Vegetarian Café for a wider selection of affordable veggie treats. But be careful if you have an apartment near a restaurant that serves meat, because lard is often used to prepare both oven bread and biscochitos.

    Transportation Options in Albuquerque, NM

    Don’t have a car? There are plenty of apartments near public transportation services in Albuquerque, and depending where you’ll be working or studying, its mild temperatures and sunny skies will have you walking everywhere in no time. To avoid driving altogether, look for apartments near Albuquerque Metro bus stops. Downtown Albuquerque apartments are especially convenient; many residents choose to walk to work, and if you need to go someplace farther, the speedy Rail Runner Express takes you to universities, hospitals, concert venues, and more.

    No matter where your apartment is, Rapid Ride’s Red, Green and Blue Lines can connect you to just about every part of Albuquerque. Its fleet of low-emission buses even have convenient GPS technology, so you can track each bus and leave your apartment with plenty of time to spare. If you or a loved one has a physical impairment, you won’t have to deal with the complicated, time-consuming boarding process of most city buses. Rapid Ride buses are low to the ground for speedier boarding, and each of them are equipped with three-bike racks – just another reason that Albuquerque is an accommodating and welcoming place to find your next apartment.
