A great place to live!
Silver City is a great place to visit and a wonderful place to live! We continue to be recognized as one of the “Best Small Towns” in the country for our Historic Main Street, locally-grown organic foods, fine independent restaurants, vibrant arts scene, special events, gentle climate and downright friendly people. The rich mining and ranching history, blend of Hispanic and Anglo cultures, blue skies (with 360 days of sunshine), vast landscapes, natural wonderlands, and small town atmosphere, create a genuine “Americana”. Embraced by the Continental Divide, five life zones overlap near town... providing the greatest diversity of habitats in North America and making a exceptional basecamp for ecotourism.
Silver City is the oldest incorporated town in New Mexico (and the only one still operating under a Territorial Charter). The multi-cultural frontier location continues to be the area’s center for commerce with pet-friendly locally-owned businesses that will order what you need and provide personal customer service. It’s unique, with 90 miles to the nearest mall and 45 to the closest chain restaurants, you’ll feel a special “sense of place” that sets Silver City and Grant County apart from the rest of the world. The Town’s commitment to building a sustainable economy includes curbside recycling, water conservation and solar energy projects that provide a special quality of life.
Honesty and common courtesies prevail. The relaxed pace is a custom newcomers are often challenged to adapt. Sundays are spent with family and friends, and shops are often closed…so plan to visit the museums and cultural sites, or enjoy a scenic drive.
Horns are tooted to say “hi” to friends (not rush traffic), and locals find another route if two vehicles (or grocery carts) are side by side blocking a thoroughfare… as we know that folks are taking the time to talk and catch up with one another. We stop on the side of the road and wait for funeral processions to pass, and also pull over for faster motorists if we are moseying along back roads. It’s all part of the mutual respect, part of enjoying the moment, part of our way of life.
Plan a visit and experience our warm hospitality. Consider becoming an active member of our community. If you do…you’ll probably find that “this is the place you’ve been looking for all along”.
