The Los Alamos National Lab is the largest employer in the community, and attracts the top scientists from all around the world. The 18,000 people who live in Los Alamos County represent the most internationally diverse population in the State of New Mexico.
Los Alamos County is located on the Pajarito Plateau on the Eastern edge of the Jemez Mountains of north-central New Mexico and is made up of two communities: Los Alamos and White Rock. Our adjacent neighbors are the San Ildefonso and Santa Clara Pueblos, Espanola and Jemez Springs.
Sightseers and photographers love the spectacular views in and around Los Alamos, like the stunning mesas of Anderson Overlook. There are plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities at the hiking trails that take you through the many canyons, the Pajarito Ski Area, the golf course, the ski rink.
There are two museums in downtown Los Alamos: the Los Alamos Historical Museum, which shows the history of the area, and The Bradbury Science Museum, which features the Manhattan Project history and the history of the LANL.
