Long story short
El Paso is where fun, business and innovation collide.
We are a city poised for outstanding growth.
El Paso is the largest metropolitan area on the Texas/Mexico border and should be regarded as such. El Paso is the located at the western tip of Texas where three states and two nations connect, thus giving it a unique flavor and friendly environment.
Quality of Life
The city of El Paso is the safest city in America four years in a row. In 2012, El Paso voters approved $470 million worth of improvements to parks, libraries, museums, the zoo, and downtown. In May 2014, the first project funded by the bonds was officially opened to the public—a state of the art triple A Ballpark and with it, a new baseball team known as The Chihuahuas. Mass transportation is also undergoing an overhaul and Sun Metro recently opened up it’s first phase of their Rapid Transit System known as Brio.
We are home to the army’s second largest installation known as Fort Bliss. TX DOT is currently working on several expansions and beautification programs on El Paso’s main artery known as Interstate 10. Thus far, it includes a grand public art installation at Airway and I-10, which happens to be the main point of access for the El Paso International Airport.
Uniquely El Paso
El Paso has a vast sky that is home to some of the most amazing sunsets. It’s a city built around the Franklin Mountains, the southernmost point of the Rockies, where every night, a star shines bright in honor of a local person, business or event. If you happen to meet another El Pasoan outside of El Paso, the conversation will somehow lead to Chico’s Tacos. There’s a Marty Robins song about El Paso and the real Rosa’s Cantina is still alive an hopping.
El Paso Makes It Happen
When the El Paso community wants something, they make it happen. We wanted a Medical School so we made it happen in a big way. El Paso is home to a stand a lone Health Sciences Center, now known as the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at El Paso. It should also be noted that the college of Mines, now known as the University of Texas at El Paso has recently turned 100 years old and is undergoing a major campus transformation to celebrate their centennial.
We have the most amazing weather that allows for tons of outdoor activities such as cycling, mountain biking and rock climbing. Weather-wise October is hands down the best month in El Paso.
