Gallup, a city of more than 20,000, gains its richness from the intersection of its residents' cultures: Navajo, Pueblo, Mexican, and European descendants all call Gallup home. It is a place of contradiction, of beauty, and of honest dialogue. In Gallup, open-hearted generosity comes easily—you might be offered a joke at the counter in Maria's restaurant, or a wide smile by a man watching his grandson dance at the Inter-Tribal Ceremonial in the mid-August shadows of Red Rock State Park. Every year, Gallup embraces our new corps members. Affordable apartments and homes are plentiful and rents are low. While technically a city, Gallup offers many small-town draws, including three movie theaters, great coffee shops, and a number of delicious restaurants. The community is also home to a Habitat for Humanity chapter, a farmer's market, and a yoga studio.
