The town of Socorro, situated about an hour south of Albuquerque, offers a bit of everything - eateries, live music, festivals, an arts community, grocery stores, mechanics, decent basic health care, and a fairly low cost-of-living. But it is also a very poor county, with high rates of poverty and unemployment, and few funds for upkeep and/or improvements. The county of Socorro has a great deal of untouched land where nature abounds. It is the place to be for people seeking peace and solitude in nature. To the rest it is a ‘boring’ place with not so much action.
