Sonoma Ranch: Off Base Neighborhood/Subdivision

Review

"Organ Mountains"

Sonoma Ranch is a very safe family friendly area of town. It has a golf course in the community along with a club house that serves great food at a bit of a price. The schools in Sonoma Ranch are the best that Las Cruces has to offer. Although Las Cruces is a fairly small city with a population of 200K, it is the second largest city in New Mexico. Albuquerque is the largest city which is 3 hours away. Las Cruces is home to New Mexico State University. The city is boasts of friendly people and very little traffic. We absolutely love the area.
