On the farthest western end of Texas is El Paso, a city that sits on the Rio Grande and borders New Mexico and Mexico. El Paso is just a 30-minute drive from Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. El Paso’s proximity to and history with Mexico is reflected in its culture and food. The year-round festivals and events that El Paso hosts, such as the Dia de los Muertos Celebration and Viva! El Paso, give you a taste of this blend of cultures. Aside from annual events, the desert city offers a wide range of activities and locations to visit, such as the El Paso Museum of Art, music festivals, wineries, and the El Paso Zoo.
