Orbitz’s travel blog is letting the world in on one of the best things about El Paso; we have fantastic weather throughout the year. The travel website named us one of eight places where the weather is “picture perfect” -- but we already knew that, that's one of the reasons we choose to live here.

You probably know it because of the salsa, and how do you think they get such high quality salsa vegetables? Sunshine! El Paso has dry heat and just enough rainfall to keep the plants happy. Much like San Diego, El Paso is an outdoor playground. You can climb rocks in Hueco Tanks State Park or cycle through Franklin Mountains State Park—the largest urban state park."

San Diego, Sydney, Australia; and Oahu, Hawaii, are three of the other seven cities around the world that made the list. Check out the pretty good company we're in HERE.
