Local Attractions

Wyler Aerial Tramway State Park

5 mi. away
The Wyler Aerial Tramway at Franklin Mountains State Park features an aerial cable car situated on nearly 200 acres on the east side of the rugged Franklin Mountains. At the parking area, almost 5000 feet up, visitors can admire the cacti gardens or watch the tramway gondolas take off before purchasing tickets. Swiss-made gondolas travel on a 2,600 feet long, 1-3/8 inch diameter steel cable. The 4-minute ride soars above a canyon some 240 feet deep. From Ranger Peak, 5,632 feet above sea level, the visitor can enjoy a view of 7,000 square miles, encompassing three states and two nations. There are accessible ramps and paved grounds leading into an observation deck with pay-per-view high power telescopes to enhance the experience. Hours vary per season, please call prior to visiting.

El Paso Zoo

4 mi. away
It’s not the typical El Paso experience, but, then again, visiting the El Paso Zoo is anything but typical. The park looks as though it was carved right out of the city, an expansive green space that is home to exotic animal species from around the world. From your first visit you’ll know that this zoo was not created to house curiosities. It was carefully planned as an open landscape to be explored and discovered. It’s a place that encourages outbursts of oohs!, ahhs!, not to mention the occasional mad dash to the next exhibit. Imagine that… a place where your kids can run amuck and the only repercussion is your struggle to keep up with them. One of the most interesting things about the El Paso Zoo is that it was developed with a “total immersion” mindset. Visiting this zoo is like taking a journey; an experience that could bring out the animal in anyone. So, if you’re expecting a typical walk in the park, then you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the uncommon encounters that await you. Get ready to transform your usual family outing into a real adventure.

El Paso Mission Trail

Historical landmark
Located in El Paso’s Lower Valley this Trail is rich in history dating back 400 years. Sure to take your breath away these three adobe churches remain as living testaments to the faith of our Spanish and Indian ancestors. Established in 1862 the Ysleta Mission is the cornerstone of the Ysleta del Sur Indian Pueblo. Two miles east lies the Socorro Mission. The architecture of this mission reflects the culture, politics and insurmountable spirit of the early settlers of this vibrant town. Established in 1789 the San Elizario Chapel is an amazing paragon of late adobe church architecture in West Texas and New Mexico. It is an exquisite reflection of European architectural styles on the earlier, simpler box-like missions of the region. El Paso Mission Trail Association is dedicated to the education, promotion and preservation of the missions at Ysleta, Socorro, and San Elizario Chapel. An exhibit, “Paths of the Padres-Discover El Paso’s Historic Missions” is on permanent display at the El Paso International Airport.
