Get to know El Paso with the latest comments and reviews from people who live in or have visited El Paso

El Paso Texas might not be a mega-metropolis with the New York and LA style entertainment, but here are some Pros about this bi-national, multi-cultural mid-sized city. El Paso does not suffer from earthquakes, tornadoes, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, sunamis, tropical storms or any other type of natural disaster that cripples other regions of the U.S. every year. El Paso serves the best, most authentic Mexican food this side of the border. It's consistently one of the Safest Cities in the U.S. where people are kind, friendly and respectful to each other and visitors. So, if you're tired of living in fear year after year, you could actually LIVE IN PEACE, IN EL PASO. :) Read More

El Paso is wack and boring - 6/21/2021
I am a native from El Paso Was raised in the working class area in the east side of El Paso by Montwood high all I can say it’s grown a lot. People are friendly depends on the area. Never felt terrified of my life here there is lots of crazy drivers and if you try to work here good luck jobs are just sinking here been happenings since 09 of Obama Ever since I was young and trying to find a job only found 7.25 hour to 13 hour jobs and I’m 26 years old!! Streets are nasty as well El Paso can never fix them always patches them up. The arial view sucks after you live here about a year you’ll understand what I mean. You’ll get to know El Paso like the back of your hand. Fun for family? Lol good look over here El Paso has nothing for families oriented only have wet and wild and Peter piper and western play land. Nothing is exciting about El Paso other just to get old and boreded out of your mind and just be home majority of the time. They have lakes here but boring as hell and small like Read More

El Paso - In a Nutshell - 6/21/2021
I've lived in El Paso for the past three years. Having grown up in the greater Phoenix area, El Paso is about 10-15 degrees cooler during the summer months and it has great weather about 9 months of the year. El Paso is primarily a Hispanic city with numerous generations of Mexican-Americans living here. As a result, the schools spend a lot of resources ensuring the bilingual children succeed by providing them additional English Second Language learning courses. The added expenses for education are then passed on to homeowners and renter tenants. Although the state of Texas has no income tax, the city of El Paso has the highest property taxes in the nation at 3 percent! Most of the property taxes go towards K-12, local hospital subsidies, and law enforcement. If the schools here forced parents to prove citizenship or legal immigration status for their children attending the schools, I'm guessing school enrollment would drop by 10-15%, and so would our property taxes. The city Read More

Leave the County to have a comparison! - 3/24/2021
As an outsider that lived in El Paso from 1998 to 2004, left for 15 years, and now back again for the last 3, I can tell you that after traveling throughout the East Coast, the Pacific Northwest, and to some other countries. The most racism I have ever experienced started here in El Paso, people here are so selfish and devoid of interest in other people's well being and safety, everyone including cops and semi truck drivers use their cellphone while driving, road rage is a daily thing also. People do not respond to a simple salute, less say thanks. I mean if you are a native to this county is easy to live blindfolded to the reality specially if there is no comparison to an outside environment as most people who comment this way, have never left the area. It used to be good back in 1998, but now in 2021, it is a completely aggresive and unethical environment to live let alone raise a family. Read More

El Paso is a great place in the high desert!! - 1/7/2021
I am a native El Pasoan and I feel that El Paso has a an almost perfect quality of life if you like sunshine, affordable homes, mountains, a safe community, wonderful local restaurants plus a terrific diverse community that is welcoming respectful, kind and inclusive. Once you live here in the high desert you realize how fabulous the weather is and how marvelous the sunsets are with almost no humidity and very moderate winters! The people of El Paso are the most genuine and friendly in all of Read More

El Paso, The Sun City - 12/2/2020
El Paso is a great bilingual city, if you are a close minded person who thinks that we should only speak English in the USA, then El Paso is not for you. It sits on the border of Mexico and the USA, so the culture is a merge between the USA and Mexico. Although Juarez is a dangerous town to live in, El Paso is one of the safest cities in the USA. El Paso weather is hot but dry, so it's not too bad. It's a great place to raise kids and retire. But that doesn't mean that it doesn't have a party scene, there's tons of bars and clubs if that's yout thing. El Paso is also home to three educational institutions. El Paso Community College, Texas Tech, and the University of Texas at El Paso. It's also rich geographically with it's mountains and in history. It has tons of historical buildings, both civilian an military. For many years they were in dissaray, however, they are now being restored. El Paso is also home to one of the largest military installations, Ft. Bliss. Fort Bliss is Read More

a mostly negative place to live - 4/27/2020
don't come here if you are not from the desert. it gets too hot here . unless you have enuf money to live somewhere that has good air conditioning then this is not a good place to go. i have lived here since the middle of March 2011 and now it's almost the end of April 2020. it's not just the heat that is awful .alot of people are mean here .they are clicky/clannish here . it's not easy to make friends here unless your into being like that . there's alot of bars here and they have 2 casinos but not much else other than the tech schools and university . the cops are bad here. here in El Paso then it doesn't matter if you have bruises or not .if someone punched your head multiple times over and over all at once then you should be able to talk to the police and for them to arrest the person..but no the cops here in El Paso will just say that you are on meth even though you are not on meth . the cops are really ignorant here . even when I did have big dark bruises then a cop did Read More

Good for most...but not for me - 3/31/2020
I’ve lived in this desert city for 5 years now. I came from New Mexico so all I know is is desert. I always heard great stuff about the sun city but when I moved hear I was utterly disappointed! The people are not that nice as you may think. The drivers are ridiculous. The climate is boring and offers only sun. There is hardly any greenery which always has bothered me. Nothing exciting happens here. I’d say it’s a town for people who want to settle. It’s a nice family/military town for middle aged adults but for children and younger people...it’s very unsatisfactory. I feel limited here and I wish this town was a little more dynamic. It’s not ideal but is amazing for those who want a nice quiet Read More

El Paso is an awesome place to live in. - 10/20/2019
El Paso is unlike many other cities in the US. Living in El Paso is living in two worlds with its bilingual base. The Mexican cuisine in this city is great and the weather is excellent for outdoors. Downtown is currently in the process of renovating it's historical downtown. El Paso is also home to Ft. Bliss, the largest Army installation in the U.S. El Paso also sits in the border allowing the exchange of ideas and culture with its sister city CD. Juarez. Although CD. Juarez is high on crime, El Paso has been ranked one of the safest cities in Read More
