When Spanish Conquistadors traveled down the Rio Grande in 1598, they found El Paso along the Chihuahuan desert. As the birthplace of America's Southwest, El Paso boasts a dynamic and unique personality. Situated where West Texas, New Mexico and Old Mexico meet, El Paso is home to eight of the most historic miles in the United States, breathtaking scenery and a bustling downtown center. With 400 years of history, you'll want an El Paso rental car to make every second count!

Grab some grub
Do you like a little kick in your cuisine? You're in luck! El Paso is home to some of the nation's top Mexican restaurants, several of which have been featured on Food Network shows. Pick up legendary bites at Chico's Tacos or drive your El Paso car rental to Avila's Mexican Food. Avila's, which has been in business for more than 50 years, has been voted as one of the top 100 spots in the nation and one of the top 50 Hispanic restaurants. For a more modern take on south-of-the-border inspired cuisine, head to L&J Cafe, which actually opened in 1927 as Tony's Place but has since been passed down to the next generation.

Visit a ranch
Drive your El Paso rental car to one of the several ranches in the largest bi-national and bilingual metropolis in North America. Situated just at the edge of the city, Bowen Ranch is like a blast into the past where cattle graze and buffalo roam the sprawling flatlands. With a fantastic view of the Franklin Mountains, this is one of the few still working cattle ranches left. At the end of  your day here, head to the Edge of Texas Steakhouse and Saloon! If you are little more adventurous, head to the Hueco Rock Ranch campground, where you can pitch a tent and enjoy a night under the stars.

Venture into the past
El Paso isn't called Sun City for no reason - there are more than 300 days of sunshine on average - so cool off in one of the many museums or art galleries around town. The El Paso Museum of Archaeology and Wilderness park, which documents the story of the first inhabitants to the region. Or drive your El Paso car rental to the Fort Bliss Museums and Study Center where you can view artifacts and weapons that have played a role in the history of the U.S. Army at El Paso.
