Gallup, NM is known for many reasons, such as "Indian Capital of the World" or our latest accomplishment, The "Adventure Capital of New Mexico." Gallup, NM is located on I-40 20 miles east of the Arizona state line.
We are a small community with a population of just over 21,000 during the week, but on the weekends with all the different activities taking place our population can more than triple in size.
Gallup, NM is known for our Saturday Flea Market and for some of the most amazing mountain biking and hiking trails in the country. With our elevation of over 6,500 feet above sea level, the thin mountain air and low humidity can make for some very cool evenings.
We are home to some of the oldest and largest events in the country and if it’s Rodeo’s you like, then don’t miss our Lion’s Club Rodeo and anyone up for a game of "Cowboy Poker", then you wouldn’t want to miss, "The Wild Thing" Bull Riding Championships in July.
The second full week in August is one of the country’s oldest and largest Native American Gathering’s with this year’s 92nd Annual Gallup Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial where tribes from across the US, Canada and Mexico come to celebrate being Native America.
The Gallup, NM area is just at the doorsteps of the Navajo and Zuni Reservations where some of this country’s most amazing scenery can be found, please don’t forget to bring a camera and this area is also home to some of this country’s most amazing war hero’s of WWII, The Navajo Code Talkers and home to Medal of Honor Recipient from the Korean War, Mr. Hershey Miyamura and to several of the surviving members of the Bataan Death March and what later became known as "The Purple Heart Battalion" or officially known as The 442nd.

- I have only lived in Gallup for two years and can't imagine living anywhere else. The people are friendly and the scenery is beautiful. I was raised in coastal North Carolina with the ocean practically at my doorstep. The beach is nice, but Gallup will forever be home.

- Gallup is scary and a complete dump. It doesn't look like the United States.

- I moved back to Gallup from Maryland and I must say that this small town shows so much more respect and honor to its veterans and the men and woman that serve this beautiful country of ours. Our veterans support this community and with there mind set everyone that has served is/are there brothers and sisters. Here in Gallup the besinesses put hiring veterans first. The family's here in Gallup that there sons or daughters are in the service understand what there kids do and the respect, honor, and sacrifices that come with serving our Nation. The ones that have served before me I am truly honored for all you have done and the freedom you defended when i was a kid, now I know what you all had to give up and being away from your family's for long periods of time. I am honored to be able to give back to the veterans that came before me and I'm honored for the one that will come after. There will always be people that want to stand up and fight for this Country and that is what unites us. There are many family's here in Gallup and are proud parents and in some cases the kids that are proud of what there mom's and dad's have done for our Country. It is just awesome living in a small town where there is so much Respect, Honor, and most of all the Patriotism that this small town makes us all feel Honored.
