Located far from the bright lights of Dallas or San Antonio, in the state's western corner along the sparkling shores of the Rio Grande, El Paso boasts a different feel than its eastern counterparts. 

  • A true melting pot of American and Mexican culture, the combination is noticeable everywhere. 
  • Visit the El Paso Museum of Art and see American works from the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as Mexican colonial art and retablos from the 1700s and 1800s. 
  • Restaurants serve authentic Mexican cuisine, Texas barbecue or a little of both. 
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.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District, awarded a $648 million contract Jan. 29 to Clark McCarthy Healthcare Partners II for the construction of the Fort Bliss, Texas, replacement hospital.
The new 1,132,000 square-foot facility will replace the existing William Beaumont Army Medical Center to accommodate the increased troop presence and dependent care resulting from the recent Fort Bliss expansion program.

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.
