A Subdivision in Valencia CountyAbout

Valencia County, traditionally agricultural, has become increasingly diversified. The Village of Los Lunas has become the county's commercial center as well as a growing satellite community for the Albuquerque metro area. The City of Belen, farther south, maintains its identity as a transportation and agricultural center. Residents cherish a quality of life that's both country and cool in Valencia County - access to big-city amenities but rural in character.

Besides Los Lunas and Belen, the county includes Tomé, site of the University of New Mexico-Valencia campus; Peralta; Isleta Pueblo, one of the state's largest pueblos; and the state's newest incorporated community, Rio Communities.
