Stay near El Paso’s top things to do, including golfing and hiking

Located within a mile of El Paso International Airport (ELP), the Radisson is a great home base for exploring the most interesting things to do in El Paso. Head to the El Paso Museum of History or the Magoffin Home to learn about the past through an interactive 3D wall and an original adobe home. World-class art from photographers, painters, and cutting-edge artisans is on display in the Stanlee and Gerald Rubin Center for the Visual Arts and the El Paso Museum of Art.

The biodiversity of the northern Chihuahuan Desert is one reason to leave the comfort of your hotel room for a hike in Franklin Mountains State Park, the nation’s largest urban state park. Roses love the 300 days of El Paso sunshine, so take an afternoon to stroll among the fragrant flowers in the city’s rose garden. For a more vigorous outing, test your skills on Butterfield Trail’s golf course designed by Tom Fazio. Shopping, festivals, and a lively music scene offer a host of reasons for you to extend your visit to El Paso.
