On Texas’ most distant western point, on the U.S.-Mexico border, lies America’s safest city. El Paso is also one of the most affordable, best performing and opportunity-rich places in the country. Ranking 19th in size, Sun City is home to 800,000 people, mountains, desert, river and Fort Bliss. With Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, across the Bridge of the Americas, El Chueco is a busy international gateway for commerce and people and a perfect product of natural geography.

In El Paso, brilliant sunshine graces 300 days of the year, and the Chihuahuan Desert, Franklin Mountains and Rio Grande are predominant land features. At 7,000 feet, the mountain is the largest urban park in the country by area, with rock climbing, mountain biking, the Wyler Aerial Tramway and a 459-foot-tall lighted star. Nearby are Hueco Tanks State Park, offering boulder climbing, and Potrillo Volcanic Field, embossed in lava flows and shield cones. 

El Paso is a city based on trade and manufacturing, defense, education and health care. Area universities include the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Schools of Medicine and Nursing, as well as UTEP and its popular majors in criminal justice, biological science, psychology and kinesiology. Since Las Cruces is a mere half hour away, New Mexico State University – a NASA Space Grant College – and White Sands National Monument and Missile Range add yet another dimension to the area’s high-tech research and development opportunities.
