El Paso Reviews

1,103 reviews
All Categories
El Paso is sunshine-filled, and driveable. There's a fairly wide variety of restaurants all over town, and a concentration of museums, galleries, cafés & bars downtown. The weather is a boon to year-round tennis players, golfers, runners and cyclists. Hikers, runners and cyclists enjoy the trek up Transmountain Road, over the Franklin Mountains in the middle of El Paso. Vineyards are located on the Westside of the mountain, and they offer tastings, a nice way to cap off a busy week! The myriad of people from all over the world who have passed through El Paso have left their mark on the food, music and community.
The city is growing outwards at an immense rate. We're living in a new housing community on the eastside, where it was only desert all around, and already there's construction farther out for new businesses and homes. Schools, fire and police are interspersed into each area and I've never seen an issue yet due to not enough municipalities. Mountains are beautiful and the summers are hot!
El Paso is my hometown and I absolutely love it! The people are extremely friendly and very willing to help anyone in need. The overall environment is easy going and relaxing. The only improvement I would like to see is more recreational activities available in the city. Other than that, El Paso is a great place to live and raise a family, as well as an excellent retirement location.
