El Paso, Texas is ones of those cities that I instantly fell in love with. The landscape is so different from what I see in the Midwest and yet it had a few similarities. I live in a Tri-State area where it is common to cross state borders daily and El Paso’s location is a Tri-city with access to both New Mexico and Juarez, Mexico. It almost feels like it’s own distinct place because the landscape is so different from the flatter parts of the Texas.
With 1400+ holiday events over the course of 40 days, Grapevine, Texas is known as the “Christmas Capital of Texas” and they take that title seriously. You may think that holiday events are only revolving around kids, but you will find that many of these adventures are great for a date night or evening out with friends too.
