Reddit user u/ijustsawmanila says that he is planning a road trip through Texas later this year and is asking local folks how to best spend 24 hours in El Paso.  

It didn't take long for El Pasoans to chime in with suggestions, including where to eat, hike, and take in the scenery.

One person laid out a whole day which included:  

  • Morning: Hiking through the Franklin Mountains  
  • Lunch: At Taconeta  
  • Midday: Take a nap 
  • Sunset: Watch from Scenic Drive 
  • Drinks: At the Plaza Hotel and The Reagan 
  • Dinner: Nachos at the Tap (A la Mexicana) 
  • Morning Excursion: At McKelligon Canyon 
  • Saturday Brunch: At Café Central (recommends the cream of green chile soup) or Chico's Tacos (if they're hungover).

This person also suggested that they check out the Plaza Theatre or take in a Ghost Tour while in town.

Other Reddit users suggested that they stop in at the Kings X for drinks and a bite to eat at Lucy's, while others mentioned checking out Hueco Tanks.  

Another user mentioned that a hike up off Transmountain (Tom Mays) would be great to check out, followed by making a stop at Adventure Zone for an order of McCrory's Tacos. Or maybe indulge in some gourmet appetizers and craft beer on the patio of Aurellia's Bottle Shop & Brewhouse off Resler or maybe Flix Brewhouse.

El Paso sure does have a lot to offer, but I suppose it all depends on what people like to do; for example, if someone wants to hike, then El Paso is the perfect place to hit those trails. For foodies, the borderland offers a plethora of legit eats, and if it's art you love, then there are plenty of murals and galleries to hit up.  

No matter what you're into, El Paso has it all –  all you have to do is ask.
