    This might be a odd question for our website but here goes. We have been asked to housesit in Valencia New Mexico. It is east of Los Lunas.

    My question is the area safe? Any problems with gangs?

    I have done a Google search and there is not that much available on this small city.

    Please give me your impressions of the area if you live near. Thanks in advance.

    Valencia is across the Reeever from Los Lunas. hehe I Grew up and graduated from LL High. Great place to be a tall white guy with his not so tall hispanic friends.
    Los Lunas has changed a 1000 % since I left home. Just another small to midsize town with all the modern conveniences. To be honest I didn't know Valencia existed except as in the county, Valencia County. Bet you could drive through there and not know you've left Los Lunas. Go visit !:1drink

    Just don't go too far east to Meadow Lakes up on the mesa. Sounds like it has turned into some kind of hell hole the last several years. But maybe it is all just rural shenanigans.
