When you travel to El Paso by airplane, you will likely fly into El Paso International Airport, which is located on Convair Road approximately six miles east of the downtown area. After arriving at the airport, check out the portion of the Butterfield Trail that is still maintained on the airport�s property and get a glimpse of the famous stagecoach passage that led from St. Louis to San Francisco.

Weather in El Paso

Summers in El Paso are hot and dry due to the city�s hot desert climate. Average high temperatures during the summer months are over 90�F, and the bright desert sun can make the days extremely uncomfortable if you plan to be outdoors. Dust storms are frequent during the spring season, making autumn the best time of year for a visit if you will be spending much time outside. Pack plenty of sunscreen no matter when you choose to visit, because El Paso is nicknamed Sun City for a good reason.

Take Pleasure in El Paso

With Mexico huddled just across the Rio Grande, El Paso has a decidedly Mexican atmosphere, but there are many things to do in this city besides shopping for Mexican-style trinkets. Visit places like the Border Patrol Museum to truly appreciate how life works in this border town. If you are an outdoor adventurer, try exploring the state parks by hiking the mountain trails and going rock climbing. Because El Paso is so hot during the summer months, summertime in this city is less busy than cooler months. If you don�t plan on spending much time outdoors or want to experience the desert heat for yourself, you may be able to save some money on your vacation package by travelling to the area during the summer, which is when hotels offer bigger discounts to help fill their empty rooms.
