“There’s nothing to do here.” “El Paso is so boring.” “El Paso is a dark pit of nothingness.” Trust me, I’ve heard it all. To all you naysayers I say “Shut yo mouth! El Paso is not boring there are only boring people.”
Get your booty off the sofa, don’t go to the bar one weekend and you just might have a li’l extra money to go out and do/see some pretty awesome stuff here. I hardly have time to sit and relax because there is so much to do here in and surrounding our gorgeous El Paso.
If you’re doubting me as you read this then I hope you realize that life will be what you make it anywhere. You could be living in New Zealand in a treehouse eating ice cream all day and still be miserable if you CHOOSE to be. Make the most of where you’re at and what we offer.
You hungry? Want some authentic Mexican Food, Soul Food, Italian, Asian Fusion, OG Burgers, Sushi, or maybe a lil Mediterranean? Get out and take your pick of any of our local delicious eateries and food trucks. We have a huge selection to make everyone’s taste buds jump for joy. You need to get some fresh air?
Take a hike in the beautiful Franklin Mountains or go bouldering at Hueco Tanks, a rock climbing mecca in the world. People travel from all over the world just to climb at Hueco Tanks and, to think, most people who live in El Paso have never even been there.
You want to explore history and learn the tales of this land?
Take a trip down memory lane on the Mission Trail, visit the Tiqua Indian Culture Center, Check out the jail where Billy the Kid escaped, maybe hit up the annual 1st Thanksgiving Celebration that happens every year in San Elizario, or take a stroll in our beautiful downtown El Paso and gaze at all our gorgeous architecture (before they knock it all down.)
You want to take the kids out this weekend? Take them to the Chihuahuas Game, archery classes at local gun shops, Artist’s and Farmers Market on Saturdays, get lost in our corn mazes, or maybe solve a mystery within 1 hour at the Disaster Room 915, and the Punk Rock Flea Markets. No matter what you are looking for you can find it here in EP.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for then message me on my Facebook blog and I will help you find it and 95% of the time it will be local.
When in doubt ask Annie’s Adventures on Facebook. No excuses to be home bored.
Now make me proud and get out there and start enjoying our El Paso and tell them I sent ya 😉
