Beat the Heat at Nine Thousand Feet

July 20, 2012 in Blog

Well, Rand McNally’s Rogue Riders came and went, and while Cloudcroft didn’t win Friendliest Small Town in America in Rand McNally’s Best of the Road rankings, we had a really great time hanging out with Rob and Jen, and from their videos, it looks like they had fun, too. And anyway, we don’t need an award hanging on the wall to know we’re friendly—it’s part of what makes our town great. Well, that and the weather.

We had recently met some North Texans who rented a vacation property in Cloudcroft from us, and they loved the fact that while Southern New Mexico is hot during the day, the temperature drops at night. The whole idea of needing a jacket on a summer night kind of blew their minds. If there’s one selling point (and there are many) for taking a vacation in Cloudcroft during the summer, it’s our "new mexico" "vacation home" summerfantastic weather. While people in Arizona and Texas sweat it out from morning ‘til midnight, we get to cool off at night. Our new Texan friends became big fans of sitting on the porch at night, breathing in the mountain air and sipping on chardonnay (and a Happy Camper beer), and they vowed to make Cloudcroft their new mid-summer getaway spot.

In other words, if you want to shake the summer torpor and beat the heat, you can’t go wrong with a weekend away in the mountains. If you’re looking for a summer getaway or a weekend vacation, give Amigo Realty a call—we’ll be happy to help you cool off.
