El Paso: Merging American and Mexican Culture

El Paso is a unique city that feels like America and Mexico, all at once. The cultural influences from both are clearly evident in the architecture, the people, and especially in the food. The El Paso Museum of Art has an excellent collection of traditional work alongside work from the best known modern Southwestern artists. The Wyler Aerial Tramway is the best way to see the area. A quick trip on this tram will take you to Ranger's Peak, the 4000 foot elevation mountain top where you can take in amazing views of both Mexico and El Paso. Don't forget to try some Mexican food while here, this is some of the best."
