A short drive from Albuquerque, Placitas has so much to offer. Its picturesque village, while very close to Santa Fe and Albuquerque, has stayed separate and hidden in the hills. The charm, beauty, space, and quiet of Placitas are being discovered these days by folks who enjoy the feel of a small community where social events center around the school and the churches, the garden and horse clubs, arts and crafts, and musical events. Placitas village, and its outlying communities will always retain a rural lifestyle while having the advantages of the cities nearby. New residents include: professionals who commute easily from Placitas to Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, and Santa Fe; artists inspired by the beauty of the natural surroundings; and retired folks who appreciate the quiet countryside and convenient location.
Stunning views of the western mesas and the Sandia mountains make Placitas one of the most desirable places to live in New Mexico.

Many events take place in Placitas throughout the year, including the Placitas Home Tour, and the Placitas Studio Tour to name a couple. The New Mexico Wine Festival at Bernalillo is another popular event that happens just down the road on Labor Day weekend. Here are some links to local events and services:
