Wyler Aerial Tramway
For an amazing view, hop on one of the two gondolas of the Wyler Aerial Tramway and catch an amazing view from 940 feet above the ground. On a clear day, you can see three states and two countries from the tramway, which comes to a stop at 4,692 feet above sea level at the top of Ranger Peak. At the top of the tramway ride, you’ll find a gift shop and cactus gardens, as well as a stunning view of El Paso from above.
Franklin Mountains State Park
The Wyler Aerial Tramway is only one part of Franklin Mountains State Park, which encompasses over 24,000 acres of land. The park is open year-round, offering facilities for scenic drives, hiking, biking, rock climbing, geocaching games, bird-watching, and more. There are over a hundred miles of rugged desert trail on the Franklin Mountains, as well as several RV sites and fourteen tent sites. Other classic El Paso attractions — only a bus rental away — include the Chamizal National Memorial, the Mission Trail, the Hueco Tanks State Park, Feather Lake, and more.
Scenic Drive Overlook and Murchison Park
One of the greatest attractions of El Paso is the beautiful scenery, and there’s no better view than the scenic drive that leads to the Murchison Overlook. From here, you can get a spectacular view during the day and an equally gorgeous view during the night. Visitors stop to get a breathtaking 360 degree look at El Paso, Socorro, Juarez, and more. Because the roads are narrow and the driving sometimes tricky, you might want to forego taking the rental car and book a shuttle bus rental to this classic El Paso attraction.
El Paso Zoo
Gather some friends in El Paso and book a party bus rental for something wild! The 35 acres of the El Paso Zoo houses over 200 species of animals. The zoo is split into three areas: the Animals of Africa, Animals of Asia, and Animals of the Americas. On display are such exotic creatures as lions, zebras, giraffes, kudu, grey crowned cranes, and the endangered Amur leopard and Aruba rattlesnake. The El Paso Zoo is dedicated to conservation efforts: in 2010, they became home to two of only 40 Mexican gray wolves left in the world.
El Paso Museum of Archaeology
Since 1977, the El Paso Museum of Archaeology has sought to showcase the wealth of archaeological sites located in the El Paso area. Among the many exhibits: ancient agave fiber cloth, jewelry, pottery, pre-Columbian art, and dioramas illustrating what life was like in bygone eras. The museum brings in thousands of visitors every year, including students and educators, who arrange school bus rentals to this El Paso museum.
