Quality of Life
Flavor of Life
Our region has a special “flavor of life” that extends to all aspects of work, personal, and family life. Throughout the year, area residents enjoy local festivals celebrating our heritage and nationally recognized concerts. Our endless sunny skies grant residents a chance to explore historical petroglyphs at times of the year other parts of the country are buried in snow. Low property taxes, low tuition rates, low costs of living, and low crime rates demonstrate that our style of life brings the highest level of satisfaction possible.
Ciudad Juarez’s reputation as a dangerous city is widely inaccurate. In 2016, cities like St. Louis, Baltimore, Birmingham, New Orleans, and Detroit all had higher homicide rates. At the same time, El Paso has held consistent rankings as one of the safest large cities in the United States.
In the region, you are 22% less likely to experience a violent crime compared to the US national average and 5% less likely to experience a property crime.
