Let's be honest.... Ft. Worth isn't the most attractive city, and Juarez is an impoverished mess, so while you can take in a lot here, and it will wow you for a second, it's just not a beautiful sight. Maybe it's better at night with the lights.

This drive through and stop at viewpoint was nice. We came by it doing a border tour and it was interesting to see the variances between Texas and Mexico from this point of view. There are a few informational signs which we did not get to see so maybe allow a little time for that.

Enjoyed a nice drive up to this lookout point. Amazing and beautiful views of El Paso and Juarez in the near distance.

The drive up here provides great views of the city, and it's a fun diversion when you're out for an afternoon or evening and looking to fill a little time. Not a long activity - it just takes a few minutes to take in the sight.

The lights in the clear desert air are breathtaking. The drive is a bit scary at night, but worth it.

Short but nice drive. We walked on Rim Road, which has a lot of nice houses. Good views of El Paso and Juarez. A couple of nice overlooks. The drive at night could be interesting with the city lit up, but I would be wary of the overlooks, as the liquor bottles and trash left behind indicate a less desirable atmosphere at night. Good to do if in El Paso, not going worth going out of the way.

Quick little drive over the mountains between East and West El Paso. Worth the trip over if you are in the area but not a path that you would take for your daily commute. View is nice but not staggering.

Its a short drive to the viewing area and there is limited parking. Luckily it wasn't too crowded and we were able to get a spot right away. We went during the day because we were worried about crime in the area after dark. The view is very beautiful although I think it would be prettiest after dark with all the lights on. No matter when you go the view is nice and its free!

Great place to drive during a clear day in El Paso. Great views, road well maintained. Be prepared that this road is closed on Sundays.
