Tucson. There are so many things to do outside outside of town. There are the Santa Catalina Mountains where you can go skiing and then come back into tucson and play golf. There are so many trails to bike and hike on its endless. Some of the most beautiful country in the US. I mean just look at that pic of Tucson. Those mountains in the background are 9,000+ft with a ski resort and tons of trails, fishing, etc. Definitely Tucson.

Criteria:
- Public transportation: Tucson at least has it, take that El Paso.

- Food: Both. Tucson has more Asian options though, so Tucson wins.

- Education: University of Arizona > University of Texas at El Paso.

- Recreational activities: Hiking in both... they are roughly the same in this tie.

- Natural scenery: Tie, they are roughly the same. Tucson looks prettier IMO.

- Population (city, MSA, CSA, etc.) Tucson is larger.

- Downtown vibrancy: Tie, with a slight lead to El Paso.

- Location: Can't lie El Paso has a baller location.

- Weather: Tucson hands down son!

- Economy: Tucson's is bigger and more prominent, but El Paso's is growing faster.

- Diversity (people): Tucson hands down yeahhh!

- Nightlife: Tucson. The collegetown area is freakin baller.

Overall: Tucson. It's my favorite city in the USA for a reason. No competition IMHO. But El Paso is nice too.

Tucson

El Paso is a little too close for comfort being right across the border from Juarez, Mexico. If they could ever eradicate that problem at the border, El Paso wouldn't be such a bad place.

I would think so. El Paso seems flat? Maybe I hadn't visited long enough
