Revitalized Downtown El Paso boasts historical buildings, cultural sites, shops, museums, and numerous entertainment venues, and yet it’s less than a mile from the U.S.-Mexico border. The city’s Franklin Mountain State Park is the largest urban park in the nation, offering year-round hiking and biking. Butterfield Trail Golf Club was named the best municipal course in Texas and the third best in the U.S. in 2013 by Golfweek. El Paso also boasts a beautiful Botanical Gardens and zoo. One can also take a short trip to Sunset Heights to discover landmarks that helped to make El Paso a historic destination.
