About El Paso

El Paso, home to more than 700,000 people, is a sprawling city, spread across the vast Texas landscape, an active cultural hub that mixes the flavors and spices of its neighbors and creates something distinctly El Pasoan. From the parades, festivals, fiestas and la musica, the city has plenty to offer.

Downtown/Central

Downtown El Paso harbors a lot of historical and cultural attractions, including many of the city's museums and entertainment venues. The El Paso Convention Center, Plaza Theater, the Museum of Art, and the stately Camino Real Hotel all lie within a tight radius at the intersection of North Santa Fe Street and West Mills Avenue. City Hall stands just one block up from the Convention Center along with the Insights Science Museum; the Union Depot, Union Plaza, and a number of nightclubs, like Studio 69 and Da Shack, lie a block to the west.

Walk a block east of Plaza Theater and you'll hit San Jacinto Plaza, also known as Plaza de los Lagartos, memorable for its colorful alligator fountain. South from here, on the blocks around South Mesa Street and South El Paso Street, throngs of shoppers walk streets filled with stores and markets strongly reminiscent of the Juárez mercados. Those looking for bargains would do well to shop here before heading for the border.

Airport Area

El Paso provides many services for those coming in and out of the airport, with a number of nearby restaurants and hotels. There's the Shogun Steak House (Japanese), Griggs (New Mexican) and Los Bandidos de Carlos & Mickey's (Mexican), to name a few. The Marriott, Wingate, and Embassy Suites are all located in this area. The Fort Bliss Military Reservation is also near the airport.

West Side/New Mexico

This swath of El Paso is bordered by the Franklin Mountains to the east and New Mexico almost everywhere else, save for I-10 connecting the area to downtown. Sunland Park draws many visitors, what with its Racetrack & Casino and Western Playland Amusement Park. A little ways to the north the Keystone Heritage Park and its Desert Botanical Gardens warmly greet the curious passerby.

Further along Highway 28, those with a discerning wine palate can find La Viña Winery and Zin Valle wineries. Straddling the northern Texas/New Mexico border, the small town of Anthony draws water lovers with its Wet 'N' Wild Waterworld.

Deeper into New Mexico, the Las Cruces' fairgrounds hold a number of notable events, and the White Sands National Monument will beguile even the most jaded of globetrotters. A day-trip's worth of fun can be had at Alamagordo with its museums and at Ruidoso Downs, with their racetrack and casino.

East Side/Lower Valley

Where only a few decades ago there was nothing but desert, now rests a whole new addition to El Paso's metropolitan area. Beside the sprawling strip malls and myriad suburbs can be found some historical treasures. The Misión de Corpus Christi de Ysleta del Sur near the Tigua Indian Reservation & Ysleta del Sur Pueblo, for example, bears testimony to the early Spanish influence in the area. The tribe runs the adjacent Speaking Rock Entertainment Center, where a fun time is had by all.

A little further east you can reach the suburbs of Horizon City, Clint and Homestead Meadows; about two hours east, the Guadalupe Mountains National Park beckons with all its natural splendor. Just another 40 miles and across the border into New Mexico lies the stunning Carlsbad Caverns National Park, a popular attraction for nature buffs and casual visitors alike.

Juárez

El Paso's sister city, Cuidad Juárez, lies right across the border within easy walking distance (automobile traffic can get quite backed up). This city has seen increased violence in recent years, so exercise caution if visiting. There are several attractions in this city, such as the Mercado Juárez, which teems with tourists looking for (and getting) bargains on souvenirs and the like. The nearby Villa del Mar feeds the hungry masses and has restrooms. Also close by is the 17th-century Spanish mission, La Misión de Nuestra Señora Guadalupe, which holds the distinction as the oldest intact building in this part of the Southwest.
