Paso questions and answers
How reasonable are El Paso
Compared to the rest of the
state, lodging in El Paso is very affordable. You can probably get
away spending between $50 and $100 for a good mid-range hotel.
Keep in mind, hotel tax at
the present time is 15.5%.
If you'd like to stay at a more fancy spot, you can try the
modern Hilton Camino Real.
Any breakfast recommendations
in El Paso?
If you want to try a uniquely
El Paso place, you can start your day at the H&H Car Wash,
which is a hole-in-the-wall diner beloved by locals. You can
eat a Mexican breakfast while
actually getting your car washed.
Is there anything fun to do in
I'm not sure what you mean by
fun, but if you're looking for entertainment, the closest thing El
Paso has to an entertainment district is a single block of
restaurants and bars on Cincinnati Street
near the University of
Texas El Paso. For entertainment listings, you can pick up the free
monthly paper called the El Paso Scene or the Friday Tiempo
supplement to the El Paso Times.
How does El Paso compare to the
rest of Texas?
El Paso has little in common
with the rest of Texas. Isolated at the state's far-western tip,
west than most of New Mexico, El Paso is without the
bounties of big oil and high tech.
However, El Pasoans are
a proud and unpretentious people.
