Not sure, but this may be the second oldest settlement in the entire United States (after St Augustine, Florida). Not too exciting, but there is a casino next door and it is practically walking distance to Mexico.

The El Paso Mission Trail is 9 miles long, You can certainly see it in one day, but I have found out that sometimes not all the missions are always open. And if you buy any souvenirs in the Portales Museum in San Elizario, take cash because they don't take credit
