El Paso, Texas: Thriving Southwestern Town with Desert Landscape
El Paso is situated at the very southwestern tip of Texas along the Rio Grande, which forms the border with Mexico. Naturally, the influence of Mexico can be seen nearly everywhere in El Paso, from the architecture to the food. Authentic Mexican eateries abound in downtown El Paso, especially on Mesa Street, where you can sample flautas, carnitas burritos, and deshebrada tacos.
With more than 24,000 acres, El Paso’s Franklin Mountains State Park is the largest US park located entirely within a city. Here, you can explore the mountainous landscape on 100 miles of multiuse trails designed for hiking, biking, and piggyback riding.
Nearby, at the University of Texas at El Paso, you can get an up-close look of the Chihuahuan Desert at the Centennial Museum and Gardens. There are more than 600 varieties of native plants in the outdoor gardens, and inside the museum, there’s a variety of permanent exhibits on geology, native mammals, and regional fossils.
