About Placitas

Ask three Placitans what they like best about living in Placitas and you may get six different answers. One will say it is being so far from everything, another, being so close to everything — and both will be right.

For some it is the peacefulness, for others the proximity to hiking trails. Most will mention the perfect weather, four distinct seasons without harsh extremes. But almost everyone's answer will include something about the views. Many homes look north toward the hills and mesas, all the way to the Jemez range and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains north of Santa Fe.

Others face the mountain, that smooth yet imposing spine of the Sandias which covers with snow in the winter. Some homes get both views. In another pleasant paradox of Placitas life, these comforting views are always the same, and yet they change constantly thanks to the sun's evolving angles and the seasonal rebirth of high desert flowers and shrubs.

With it's convenient proximity to both the Albuquerque-Rio Rancho metro area and Santa Fe, Placitas is recognized as a unique – and a uniquely situated – bedroom community for these areas.


Chamber involvement...

The Placitas Chamber of Commerce is actively involved in building and maintaining the Placitas area. We are part of the "Adopt a Highway" program sponsored by the NM Department of Transportation - and we do our best to keep our community clean. 

About your chamber...

We wanted to let you know that the Placitas Chamber of Commerce is not a member of the US Chamber of Commerce. Your Placitas Chamber of Commerce is a wholly independent community organization, and we typically do not take positions on national issues. We donate no money to the US Chamber, and we do not endorse it's positions.

Chamber Sponsored Events

The Placitas Chamber of Commerce is known for some special events that we sponsor every year.

Placitas Appreciation Day

Visit the Gallery for images of the 2015 event! Placitas Appreciation Day is an annual spring event sponsored by the Chamber to celebrate and share the unique sense of community that makes Placitas such a special place to live and work. It's usually held the first Saturday in June, and it's fun filled event the whole community looks forward to. Plan to join us again next year and reconnect with neighbors, make new friends, enjoy a day with others from the community and visit with the businesses who serve it.  PAP1

Placitas Home Tour

Since 1997, the Placitas Home Tour has enchanted visitors and showcased some of New Mexico's finest builders. As fall blankets the rolling mesas of Placitas and the leaves begin to change, the Placitas Home Tour opens the doors of many custom homes to the public. Builders work all year to prepare their homes for the show and attendees can expect to see some of the most beautiful homes in New Mexico. The Home Tour is typically held the first and second weekends in October.
