1. Bien Venido Marker
Inscription. El Paso has always been a transportation, agricultural, industrial and international crossroads, with a well balanced economy. Built upon a strong spiritual, cultural, governmental and educational foundation. Sunny days, crystal clear nights and moderate temperatures with low humidity give it a climate unsurpassed. The horizons are limitless and as beckoning as is the warmth of our friendship. We welcome you to all of this, and more.
