El Paso Highlights    

El Paso is a thriving international city that plays a key role in world trade, manufacturing and distribution. It’s a center for health care, higher education and cultural arts. El Paso is also a 400-year-old community with roots that reach back to Native Americans, Spanish conquistadores, Mexican immigrants and American pioneers. This unique blend of cultures and customs makes a city of 700,000 feel like a small town. Friendly people, sunny weather and a range of outdoor recreation add to the quality of life. Ranked as the second safest city in the United States, El Paso also offers a world-class symphony orchestra, nationally recognized museum of art and a vibrant cultural scene.With our sister city of Ciudad Juárez in Chihuahua, Mexico, El Paso is part of an international metroplex that honors its diverse past and looks to a promising future.
