This is great when they shut the gates and keep the cars off the road for 4 or 5 hours.When I do it I go full retro and listen to American Top 40 with Casey Kasum reruns on 92.3.

El Paso is a city full of mean and hate. Stay away from there if you can. I'd even take Shreveport over El Paso.

It's true. I've had nothing but terrible experiences with the people there. From being ignored to being stared at to having to deal with people yelling at me there. El Paso is the only city in Texas that is not friendly. Not to mention it's impossible to meet people down there. At least Shreveport has very friendly people.

But I'm only comparing Shreveport to El Paso. If you want to live in the desert, I'd choose Phoenix and anywhere in Phoenix is amazing. Even Mesa is nicer and friendlier than El Paso.

Don't live in Tucson, it's exactly like El Paso. The only difference is it's close to a big city. Other than that, it's El Paso's twin sibling. Phoenix though is a lot like Dallas with Southern Hospitality, friendliness, and your neighbors bring you cookies and a pie. Phoenix just gives off that DFW Metroplex vibe. I'd go there if you want to live in the desert. The heat is not bad and is more tolerable compared to Houston humidity.

Are you pretty familiar with San Antonio? I´m kind of between EP and there at the moment. I grew up in New Orleans, and Shreveport isn´t for me! I am looking west, really SA is the furthest east I´m even considering. If I ended up in El Paso, at least I´d be able to get to Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, etc. a lot faster.

I have friends in Las Vegas who seem happy there. The heat there is probably about the same as Phoenix, no? I think that in 20 years El Paso heat will be about what Phoenix heat is today.

For the most part.

As the earth warms, Phoenix and El Paso will get hotter. My understanding is that for the moment El Paso is cooler than Phoenix, but that the average temps of both will most certainly go up.

San Antonio is much better than El Paso in a landslide. If you had to choose, pick San Antonio.

Why don't you just stop. You don't live here and it's not your job to to advise others to not live here. The city data forum is huge and I'm sure you can find other forums to spew your ugliness. Just saying.

I've lived in El paso since 96, and found people here to be very friendly. If you are walking, and come across someone, and say hello, they respond back in a friendly manner. In grocery store lines, i often end up chatting with the people around me.
I grew up on the east coast, and would say, people in new england are much more reserved...would not respond to a greeting if walking, for instance. Treat you as an outsider until you have lived there for 10 yrs.
Fl and Ga people were very friendly.
I cant imagine people thinking El Pasoans were not friendly.
