There is a lot of scenic desert and mountain recreation around as well including Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Carlsbad Caverns National Park, White Sands, Ruidoso, and the scenic Franklin Mountains right on the edge of town.

Though El Paso is an isolated medium sized city it has the grandiose sized freeways and stack interchanges that one would find in Houston or Dallas. It's downtown has great historic bones, but leaves something to be desired. It is hard to get around the fact that it is probably the most active border city in the country and that neighboring Juarez throws a big stigma into the overall psyche of the place.
El Paso looks great, UTEP football stadium has nice scenery and they have the chihuahuas now, AA I believe, but it's way too "out there" (don't mean that in a negative way) away from everything for me. I would love to go on some recreational trails at some point there.

So does anyone have anything on Brownsville lol?

Why do these threads always turn into hip hop threads?

Simple people define their existence and importance by being "repped" by a rapper.

I agree only because it's always the same guy bringing it up when it's largely irrelevant to the topic. He also never knows what he's talking about.

I wouldn't live in Austin again for double my pay.

The weather, allergies, and crowds/bad infrastructure cannot make up for the admittedly gorgeous scenery.

What's funny is that Houston usually beats Dallas in these polls. I wonder what's changed (aside from the combined effects Houston bashing and secret profile voting, of course).
