What People Are Saying About El Paso

Thank you so much for introducing me (and our Canadian Traveller readers!) to your beautiful city. It was a rare pleasure to work with a team as knowledgeable and as passionate as the people on your team. I wanted to thank you for that and to let you know that your hard work has made a lasting impression. You are all an incredible asset to your city and your state. I hope to work with you all again in the future. Until then, I’ll be dreaming of the desert (and the margaritas.)

First I want to thank you again for inviting me to visit El Paso. I had a great time and you were a great host. Since returning I have been battling the flu but I did get the first article published today. I have a Nepal article due next but will be publishing more on El Paso in the next few weeks. As each one is published I will send you a link so you can share on social media. Thanks again for a great trip!

Working with Destination El Paso opened my eyes to all there is to do and see in this lively city. I had no idea El Paso was such a foodie destination, but after eating my way through the city, I can tell you it is! Don’t miss Crave Kitchen and Bar, Cattleman’s Steakhouse, Carlos and Mickey’s, and so many other incredible restaurants. Looking for dinner and a Broadway show? Head to one of the many upscale restaurants within walking distance of the gorgeous Plaza theater. Yes, in El Paso! Also, be sure to get outside and see the breathtaking views along Transmountain Road and visit the Historic Mission Trail. Three days was not enough to see and do everything, so I’m hoping to make it back to El Paso soon. Put it on your list!

My experience in El Paso & Juarez was exceptional. Your efforts to showcase your destinations were impressive and I greatly appreciate everything you did for us. I know you put in long hours both before and during our media trip and it showed in your professionalism during our visit. Personally I will be sharing your destinations over the next several months as I have a lot of material to present. Photo editing alone will take me several days I hope you both have a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Looking forward to working with you again in 2018 and beyond.
