Back by “popular” demand, Wicked returns to take El Paso by storm. Variety calls WICKED "a cultural phenomenon,” and it continues to break box office records across North America. Winner of over 50 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, WICKED is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times). Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One – born with emerald green skin – is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for “the most complete – and completely satisfying – musical in a long time” (USA Today). WICKED will run for two weeks at the Plaza Theater.

While this fusion of cultures draws some, the rock climbers who descend on El Paso have only one thing in mind: scaling the massive boulders of Hueco Tanks State Park. Those who prefer the ground can wander through the park's interpretive center and see ancient Indian pictographs. 

Other popular El Paso pastimes include golf, mountain biking and our personal favorite, stargazing.

El Paso combines the advantages of a major metropolitan center with the ambiance and sophisticated charm of a modern Texas town. New Mexico, Chihuahua, and Texas provide three states worth of amenities; the United States and Mexico provide one blended culture in El Paso, Texas.

The El Paso economy is fueled by cross-border retail and millions and millions of dollars are spent by consumers from Mexico and New Mexico. The impact of purchases in El Paso by Mexican Nationals is substantial by all accounts and plays a critical role in local retail and real estate sales.

There are more than 78,000 households in El Paso with incomes greater than $50,000 per year.

For over 400 years, the pass of the north or El Paso del Norte, has been the main corridor for trade with Mexico and the Americas. It continues to be a clean, wholesome, and friendly place to live with a high quality of life and no state income tax.
