Holiday rentals El Paso - exploring Texas
El Paso's history is wild and varied, and you can learn a lot about it in a fun way on a walking tour or a ghost tour. The city is also home to a zoo, and some mountains – bike, hike or climb them, or simply take the Wyler aerial tramway, to see some fantastic views over El Paso and the surrounding area. There are plenty of cultural attractions not far from your El Paso holiday rental, for example the excellent National Border Patrol Museum, an insight into border control operations since the founding of the patrol in 1924, the El Paso Museum of History, Museum of Art, and Holocaust Museum. When you're finished discovering the city's culture and history, make sure to get some Mexican food – El Paso is home to the best Mexican cooking in the USA! There are Mexican restaurants everywhere, and we suggest also looking for taco trucks on the streets; they're particularly good after a night discovering El Paso's bar scene. Take advantage of the kitchen in your El Paso holiday rental and pick up some Mexican ingredients to prepare for yourself. Apart from Juarez, there aren't many cities near El Paso, though Marfa is a relatively short 3 hours away. Marfa is a centre for minimalist art, and home of the mysterious Marfa lights. Other interesting cities in Texas include San Antonio, Houston, Dallas and Austin. Galveston, a coastal city not far from Houston, is an ideal place for a Texas beach holiday!
