A Central Hub of Education and Entertainment

Albuquerque's University area is one of the most desirable places to buy a home in the city, mainly because of the community's proximity to the University of New Mexico and Central Avenue. Residents are just steps from the campus life, delicious restaurants, boutiques, and conveniences like grocery stores and pharmacies, all of which can be found along Central Avenue. But the University area is also close to I-25, I-40, the New Mexico State Fairgrounds, and the Albuquerque International Airport.
