Among the best picks are the Franklin Mountains State Park, the Hueco Tanks State Historic Site, and the Thousand Steps Trail -- each of which offer a distinct angle of El Paso with its own climate, sights, and intrinsic immersive experience.

If you’re after a little piece of history to go along with your sightseeing, this culturally rich and diverse city boasts the El Paso Museum of Art, the El Paso Museum of Archeology, and the Tigua Indian Center, among many other museums and galleries that showcase its rich and variegated history. El Paso also boasts a wide number of theaters and galleries, which appeal to the more artistically inclined.

If you’re looking for reasons to visit El Paso at any time of the year, one of the must-sees of the city is the Amigo Airsho, a grand and spectacular event that showcases El Paso’s excellent air force’s skills. It's spectacularity is what makes it one of the top ten best air shows in the United States. Of course, there is also the Fiesta de las Flores, a Hispanic festival that is held every Labor Day for three straight days.
