With its dramatic population and economic growth over the past decade, El Paso has repeatedly been cited by experts as one the best cities to reside in over the next decade. Opportunity aside, the question remains, “Is El Paso a city suitable for couples planning a family or for families with children?” The answer is a resounding, “Yes!” Here are a few reasons why El Paso is noted as among the Best Family City:

Safety – In 2010, El Paso received the All-America City Award.  El Paso would follow up this accolade by being named the “safest city in America” for four straight years. On both the violent and property crime indexes, the city ranks well below the national average. Without a doubt, the law enforcement community of this special city is doing a superior job.

Schooling – The elementary and high school students of El Paso are served by four separate but distinguished public school systems as well as numerous privately accredited preparatory schools. The city also boasts a solid community college system and the nationally renowned University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP).  One architecture and two medical schools add the cherry on top to this veritable smorgasbord of educational opportunities.

Culture – As the largest multi-racial community in the American Southwest, El Paso exposes residents of all ages to a wide variety of artistic and cultural influences. Beyond the large Hispanic influence, there is also a prominent Chinatown as well as significant numbers of Filipinos, Arabs and Nigerians, each of whom still speak their native language to a large degree.

Opportunity – The El Paso – Las Cruces – Ciudad Juarez trade border is one of the largest economic corridors in and out of the United States. Over $100B worth of business is conducted in this relatively small and out of the way location. The introduction of the maquiladoras concept, factories that operate on the Mexican side of the border but enjoy duty- and tariff-free cross-border export, are significantly expanding this trade business.
