Stop in El Paso

Hi!

Next Aug me and my family will drive from Fort Stockton to Alamogordo.

We would like to make a stoo in El paso for the lunch and for a stroll. Could you please suggest us something? Better to stay in the conditioned outlet?

Thanks

If you will have some time on your trip, check out White Sands National Monument--very interesting place that is well worth a stop.

Just a note of caution: West Texas in August is brutally hot. If you are doing White Sands, make sure you do it early in the day. Carry plenty of water with you. Old Mesilla is very nice, but again, watch the heat when you are out for a stroll.

Just a thought: have you considered driving to Alamogordo by way of Carlsbad Caverns instead?

Just went to Carlsbad Caverns yesterday. Wow. Do the King's Palace Tour. Make reservations ahead online.
