Incorporated in 1981 and a home-rule municipality since 1995, it is the third largest and fastest growing city in the state. Northwest of Albuquerque, Rio Rancho is just 45 minutes from Santa Fe and its world-class art, cuisine, and culture. Near perfect weather year-round, affordable housing, abundant outdoor recreation, and an outstanding school system are just some of the reasons Money magazine (Sept., 2018) named Rio Rancho the 30th Best Place to Live in America.
