Scenic Drive is lovely with great views of El Paso and Mexico. There was a proposal when we went! She said "yes," and the crowd cheered!

Whether you visit during the daytime or nighttime, or both, it's a great view of the city and it's sister city, Juarez, Mexico.

One of the best ways to view "Spaghetti City" and Juarez, Mexico. This road winds around the hill overlooking El Paso and it's a great way to view the night lights.

It was nice to see El Paso during the day, you can also see over into Mexico. The view is spectacular at night, though. Stop by if you can, it's worth it.

Worth the drive. The stop at the top was packed. They even had a food truck there! Don’t think about getting out unless you get lucky when someone leaves. Great views of the city even from the car.

A good place to take out of town guests. Parking is a bit tricky, but worth it. Nice panoramic view of El Paso and into Mexico.
