The picturesque and desirable North Valley area and village of Los Ranchos de Albuquerque fringes the Rio Grande Bosque to offer premier outdoor activities and a family-oriented community. Nature's bounty includes breathtaking Sandia Mountain views, and the opportunities for outdoor adventure close to home are virtually unlimited. Residents also enjoy shopping for antiques and heirlooms or exquisite art pieces in local studios and galleries, taking advantage of relaxing spa treatments, or visiting a local vineyard for a wine-tasting event. Rio Grande Boulevard is a favorite roadway for bikers, although horses are an equally common sight and share the village roads. Planet Fun is a regional attraction that offers the largest gym and slot car racer track in New Mexico. The village has experienced rapid growth in recent decades, drawing new residents to quiet rural living just seven miles from downtown Albuquerque.
