Believe me when I say that El Paso is jewel for anyone who has the ability to get up from the TV and LIVE the best life possible in the high desert with clear skies, abundant sunshine, easy access to all activies, and lovely friendly folks everywhere. Yes the desert is the DESERT and it means low low humidity, clean cars, hardly any bad weather, happy families enjoying outdoor (free) fun everyday. I cannot imagine a cooler place to live and have a high quality life for the price we have in EP! El Paso is a microcosim of what the US is becoming today; an integrated and diverse population with so many options if you open your eyes to see them.

EL Yucko, Tx - 3/27/2013

I call this place EL Paso EL Yucko because it's always dirty and gross and it's also very boring. I have family there and always has a mixed feeling going to EL Paso happy to see family but not trill to be in EL Paso. There is nothing to see to enjoy sight seeing and nothing to do but watch TV all day or play games inside. It's pretty ugly there too. The Mexican foods are great to eat that about the only good thing about EL Paso. If you don't agree with come visit Oregon where I live and compare Oregon and Washington to Texas. It's a million times prettier in the pacific northwest with ton of things to do outdoor and wonderful weather. I am working on trying to get my families to move out of EL Paso because they are missing what a good life living somewhere much nicer than EL Paso. EL Paso is a dump and armpit of America.[read more...]

EL Yucko - 3/23/2013

I have something to say about EL Paso it's ugly and boring. There is nothing to do there every time I visit my families there I get bored very quick there because there is nothing to do. I have visit beautiful places like Washiington, Idaho and Oregon and those area in the northwest are so much better than the rest of the country if you don't agree go visit the northwest you will understand. There nothing to see in EL Paso but watch TV there all the time. Job market is awful there and low paying job everywhere and I am glad I move out. I wish my families move out of EL Paso and move to Oregon closer to me in Oregon.[read more...]

The Old West - 1/29/2013

A city in the southwest desert that will remind you of the old west. 80% mexican population but a diverse culture. Yes it can be a boring city but overall I would say it's a laid back city. No ones in a rush to get another, no fast life or living on the edge, it's just an old laid back city. Abundance of Mexican Restaurants with good real authentic mexican food and by this I don't mean taco bell. Some of the favorites among the locals "Kiki's" located on piedras, "Moes" on alameda "Forti's" on Chelsea just to name a few and of course let's not forget our favorite authentic western steak house "Cattlemans" in fabens yes it's not in el paso, but it might as well be!![read more...]

Where'd the Sun go? - 12/28/2012

El Paso has fantastic weather throughout the entire year. It's sunny in the summer, the fall, and even in the winter. When the sun goes down in the winter months, it gets very cold though. When it's 35 out, it feels like 10 degrees. [read more...]

El Pasoan's are very rood people. - 12/11/2012

It doesn't matter if its from accross the border or local residents, people in El Paso TX are very rood every where, including church. For instance, when entering the freeway for sure you will be force to completely stop because nobody will give the right of way, at the mall or exiting retail store you must carefully look before crossing the street or you will run over by a car, in church women usually save a space for their purse like the purse was able to hear the mass or religous service, waiters at "Tio Juan" are very rood. Unfortunatelly, that is my experience in El Paso TX.[read more...]

Overall - 8/13/2012

Okay, I don't know what streets you all drive through here in Texas, because El Paso, is at least a great place to retire. As all age groups, let's a scale for all the cities and towns in the United States as it being 10. 5 is average. El Paso lies somewhere as a 7. The fact that it is right across Juarez, goes to show how safe it is, but don't leave stuff unsupervised. It has it's valleys and spots where there is surprising vegetation and shade, but it is a desert landscape, so keep that in mind. If you want greenery and colder climate visit two hours north to Ruidoso and Cloudcroft. There are tons and tons of restaurants, many in Downtown, and yes, the cost of living is that low. As far as renting apartments, the average for that country wise, has mostly just been going up. It hovers around that, or you can find somewhat cheaper than that average. Yes, the people are mostly friendly. As far as Texas, it has all kind of natural landscapes, climates, and bodies of water. It has quiet small towns to high-end condo commutes, and cities,...[read more...]

best kept secret in America - 7/26/2012

El Paso: You'll love it or hate it, there is no in between. As a career military person, I have lived all over the U.S. and El Paso is a great place to retire. It is a good staging point to latin america and other parts of the country. The people are sincere and very friendly! The food is fantastic. If you don't mind hanging around with a alot of "brown people" you will be in heaven. I am biased. I was born and raised in El Paso and I have plans to return and retire in this wonderful place. I currently live in Washington DC and I miss the simplicity and friendliness of El Paso. DC is such a hostile place.[read more...]

LOW cost of living???? - 6/18/2012

My boyfriend and I are researching to see where we want to move to and one article says that El Paso is one of the most overpriced cities in the US, but this page is saying its cost of living is low. Also, when we do apartment searches, everything is high-priced. Where is the LOW???[read more...]

Ugliest city in the southwest - 10/26/2011

I used to live in EL Paso for a while when I was a kid after moving there from California. EL Paso is one of the most ugliest city in Texas. The whole state of Texas is pretty much ugly. I live near Austin and Austin is a much nicer city than EL Paso but the heat and humidity is awful compare to EL Paso. When my family and I go visit California to visit I used to be so happy to get out of EL Paso and dread coming back to EL Paso when vacation is over for us. I really don't like all of Texas very much because of the heat and is so boring nothing to see. One nice thing about EL Paso is that Ruidoso and Cloudcroft is not far and its a very nice small town to visit and most of northern New Mexico is very nice. EL Paso has a lot of illegals living there and they say its the most safest city and I find it very hard to believe because they had to boost the miliary people to move there at Fort Bless and its makes me wonder why they are moving a lot of national guard to relocated in EL Paso and I think its has something to do with being very close to Mexico so I really don't think its a safe place at all. I remember when I was little my parent car has been broken into 4 times and we live a nicer part of town where people have more money. One time someone try to steal my parent van and they couldn't because thank god we had dogs barking a lot. Its very dry and rains a very few times a year and I rather see more rain than that. I have families that still live there and I hope they move out of EL Paso someday but they probably won't and I find it werid that some of my families like it in EL Paso because I don't agree with them. Some of my cousins are moving out to California because they are getting tired of living in EL Paso. I will never live in EL Paso because its very boring and ugly and I will visit but just to visit my families for a few days.If you only speak engish in EL Paso its getting harder to find a good paying job because most jobs in EL Paso reqiured spanish speaking because of growing numbers of spanish people from Mexico so I will never live there because of one of those reason. I really don't like the whole state of texas at all and I am fixing to move to the pacific northwest, maybe Eugene Oregon or near Portland Oregon because its so beautiful in Washington, Oregon and northern California.[read more...]

Overview of El Paso - 7/6/2011

El Paso is an enigma. People have been living here for over 400 years. Its people and traditons are older than the rest of Texas. But for the past 50-75 years its had been fairly stagnant. Population stayed fairly level at 175,000 to 200,000+ for nearly 20 of those years between WWI & II. Yet the climate, the people, the traditons and history that made it a culturally rich place remained and remain the same now. Yes, we are somewhat unsophisticated and the tremendous inferiority complex that most residents have about El Paso continues to lurk in our subconscious. Yet ask people who find themselves here due to work, military service or other cirumstance and they will tell you that El Paso and it's people grow on you. It takes time but eventually they either learn to love El Paso or they leave in the first two years. Maybe its because of the weather, or maybe its because El Paso is a place where for more than a century we were a place where you could "live and let live" regardless of your lifestyle or origins. In any regard, a new wave of youthful enthusiasm and entrepreneurship have erupted across the city bringing to a hungry poplace a slew of new dining and drinking and entertainment choices. We're not there yet, but we can see our future getting closer and it is promising.[read more...]

worse customer service i ever seen in doctors offi - 2/5/2011

You go to Doctors Offices in El Paso, and want to know more about the Doctor or get appointment or call for change of meds or emergency calls and you get a receptionist who does not give infomation to doctor or forgets . Call for two weeks still the receptionst didnt give the message, my mom ended up with a stroke . The doctors are not the receptionist or the Assistants , but they act like it. And they if you try to compline about them blackball you or lie. What kind of service is this ? Does a person have to have a stroke . DOCTORS please send out surveys of your office employees service please. They are ruining your business and leaving alot of bad impressions of your offices here. What is wrong with assistant or receptionist that acts like a doctor and trys to makes decisions that suppose to be done by a doctor and they dont give you the messages. Do some pyschlogical testing on them before you hire , think it called low self esteem problems. Why dont you have a LPN WORKING OR NURSE THAT QUALIFIED. [read more...]

El Paso - 4/1/2010

If you like high desert climate, it's not too bad. The air does have a funny smell to it that is hard to put your finger on. Apparently, no one who is born here seems to notice it. Cost of living is good. It can be frustrating trying to find quality fresh fruits and vegetables. If you are not Hispanic and/or do not speak Spanish, be prepared for occasionaly being treated poorly because of it (this has occured to me mostly in stores when trying to get assisstance and a few times my questions were answered with no hable ingles, even though I had witnessed the same person speaking english moments before) The rainy season is nice, except the streets get flooded badly.[read more...]

Glad I lived there when I did... - 2/13/2010

I lived in El Paso in 2004. I loved the weather, I enjoyed having a pool, I adored the incredibly delicious inexpensive restaurants, and I found some really good friends there. I am not a fan of the really dry desert, but if you like to xeriscape, you will love it. Oleander, decorative gravels, and cacti are common choices. It has an older population in many parts of the city because the dry air, low cost of living and great weather is good for people who are retired. There are also lots of military people. Homes are really cheap. The lifestyle is lush, but propped up by illegal immigration and employment that can therefore pay below minimum wage. Jobs do not pay well, but you can live on a lot less money too. Being bilingual English/Spanish is almost a necessity. Because it is a border town, it does not feel like the U.S., but it doesn't exactly feel like Mexico either. Illegal employment is rampant - many people have maids because Mexican ladies can be hired and paid a pittance "under the table". We lived in El Paso right before it got drug crazy. People told me not to go to Juarez after dark, so I didn't and I was fine. If you don't go out to Juarez at night or mix with drug people, you'll be fine too. We did have our car hotwired, and a tail light stolen from our moving truck - seriously - watch your cars, but otherwise, it feels safe and almost resort-like most of the time. The downtown area was a little dingy/run-down when I was there, and the new development was mostly out east. The landscape is dusty with sparse vegetation and rolling hills/ mountains. Rainstorms can be quite an event since the dusty hills cannot absorb the water – streets can turn into ditches in mere minutes. It’s also interesting to see the dust devils that happen sometimes. El Paso is the only place I have lived that had that phenomenon and I thought it was fun to watch.[read more...]

Outdoor - 8/19/2009

If you like hiking, El Paso is the place. There is Hueco Tanks and the Franklin mountains that you can enjoy. Its hot so make sure you bring plenty of water and always hike with a buddy. Nearby is Carlsbad Caverns. Great cave dwelling and not to worry if you like the lake, there is a man built lake nearby, Elephant Butte. It is a bit of a drive, hour and a half from El Paso. Great Outdoors and tons of culture to go around.[read more...]

Don't believe all negative stereotypes - 7/18/2009

I was born and raised in El Paso. After my graduation from University of Texas, I remained for another 3 years when I realized that the job I was looking for was difficult to come by so I left this city after 29 years. I moved to Austin, but after 5 months, I was miserable. I left and returned t El Paso where I lived for another 1.5 year when I left again to Phoenix. I'm sick and tired of ignorant people talking negatively about this city. El Paso's first mention occured 411 years ago when the Spanish conquistadors (European Spaniard and future Mexicans) trekked through the region that leads to Santa Fe, NM. El Paso has been known for being a "fighter" and a "survivor". When Texas was formed in 1845, Austin ignored El Paso due to its remote location until its voice was heard in Austin. El Paso survived on its own, but it flourished even though population continues to balloon and the local governments continue to struggle to meet the demands. El Paso is like any other cities, but its proximity to the border makes it unique for its cross culture, education and the way goverments are operated. If El Paso is so bad, why are people moving there? There're something good about it and if ignorant people are commenting negatively about it then it's obvious the ignorant people are themselves uneducated.[read more...]
