West El Paso has exploded in the last 10 years. Along with that growth has meant more traffic and strip malls. The area is not known for its architecture, but it has plenty of restaurants and things to do. Sunland Park mall and its nearby retail establishments provide convenient shopping to the area's residents.
While there are not as many parks as other parts of El Paso, there are many quiet neighborhoods for middle- and upper-income residents. Furthermore, it is 15 minutes to Downtown, only 20 minutes to the airport, and has easy access to I-10, the major highway in El Paso. It is served by two high schools, Franklin and Coronado.
