It might be easier if you tell us what things you like to do and we point you to some places in NM to do them.
I enjoy getting away from the people - the NM State Parks are all pretty nice, most of them away from cities. There are many forest service campgrounds and huge expanses for dispersed camping. If you like mountain bike riding, the Gallup area has some great trails as does Albuquerque (but lots of people too).
The higher elevations (7000' and up) may be cooling off so, depending on your definition of "comfortable", you may want to seek out the lower spots. However; sometimes the higher spots stays pretty comfortable well into December.
