El Paso, Texas

El Paso grew from earlier settlements dating back to the Juan de Oñate expedition in 1598 and a settlement by Juan Maria Ponce de León in 1827, although area missions predate that civil settlement by almost 150 years.

El Paso is the largest U.S. city on the Mexican border; neighboring Juárez, is Mexico's largest border city. The combined populations are about two million. Located in the ancient mountain pass from which the name derived, it is surrounded by mile-high peaks.

El Paso is the home of the University of Texas at El Paso, noted for its Bhutanese-style architecture and the Sun Bowl Stadium, along with a symphony orchestra, theater, museums, libraries, and diversified sporting activities including horse racing, polo, tennis, football, and basketball.
