I visted El Paso in March, my son is there in the military and has a 1 year old son. The zoo was affordable. The sea lion show was really good. A 3 year old was with us too and she loved it! It is good for young children. A lot of the attractions were not open because of the season and we went in the middle of the week. We were still there for a couple of hours. I'll go back next time I visit El Paso.
