Brief Description El Paso is located at the western tip of Texas, where Texas, New Mexico and Old Mexico meet.
DescriptionEl Paso treasures the ways of its ancestors. We still attend church in our old Spanish missions on the historic Mission Trail eight of the most historic miles in the United States built by Native Americans in the late seventeenth century. These architectural gems are brimming with history and are among the oldest continually active missions in the country. The area was also home to famous outlaws including Pancho Villa, John Wesley Hardin and Billy the Kid. If you fancy yourself a modern-day gunslinger, make sure you're outfitted properly for your high-noon duel. After all, this is the Boot Capital of the World, where you can find endless options suiting every taste and budget, and where a custom, handmade boot is never far from reach. The beautiful and majestic Franklin Mountains offer a dramatic focal point to the city, and are one of the most visible and beloved of our many treasures. Visitors can ride the Wyler Aerial Tramway to Ranger Peak to get a panoramic view of the city, or drive along Transmountain Road, which cuts right through the mountain. Enjoy a picnic in Franklin Mountains State Park, the largest urban park in the U.S. For outdoor explorers, there's also mountain biking, hiking and rock climbing virtually any time of the year. Rather take your entertainment sitting down? Catch a show at McKelligon Canyon Amphitheatre. Carved into the mountains, this outdoor venue is home to concerts, plays, and Viva! El Paso. Enjoy an evening under El Paso's famously tranquil night skies. El Paso's unspoiled natural beauty is a rarity in today's fast-paced world. During the day, our mountains take on shades of purple, vibrant orange and pale green under a sun that shines over 305 days a year in. Wide-open vistas, big skies and beautiful desert weather are the norm, and almost every day ends with a breathtaking sunset. At night, our city lights look like a scattering of glittering diamonds across an expanse of darkness. El Paso is Texas, but it's just a little different. So come enjoy the warmth of our sun and our smiles and do Texas different!
