The missions are close to each other, not in the best part of town, but no worries. Check to see if they are open on any particular day

Beautiful old missions well preserve, a lot of history, please visit the museum at the Mission San Elizario, the person who was there attending the desk was very friendly and informative. Please take the time to visit each mission: Ysleta, Soccoro and San Elizario Presidio Chapel.

This is a historic tour that I believe every one who lives or visits El Paso should make. I have made many times and I still learn more and more each and every time I take the mission tail

My mom wanted to tour the missions so I drove her expecting to be bored after the first one. Instead I was pleasantly surprised that each had a interesting story behind it as well as some amazing architecture. Well worth the drive and time spent.

We saw three missions on this nine-mile trail to the past. Note that it begins about six miles from the highway and then skirts along the border, through the pueblo, residences and businesses. The missions themselves are wonderful, but I did have to encourage my husband we were on the right path. We started at Ysleta, which is within a... More

My husband & I, my sister and her two kids, spent a few hours meandering along this off-the-beaten-path El Paso Mission Trail on a Sunday afternoon. It is a self-guided tour by car that stretches over 9 miles in El Paso, TX. The area is safe; we never felt any concern for danger along this border vicinity area, as it... More

From the oldest missions in Texas (est. 1682) to a jail Billy the Kid broke a friend out of, there's quite a bit to see along this route. A little difficult to find each church without a good map or GPS, though.

We rented a car at the airport and were inspired to take this drive after reading about it at the scenic overlook. The drive getting to the mission seemed to be filled with used car lots but once we made it to the missions it was worth it. Because we were traveling later in the afternoon we were not able...
