We loved getting to see the three missions. The are all different and beautiful. The Socorro Mission gift shop was open the two times we came, and we were able to get some neat items. We tried 5 times (on a few different days) to catch the Ysleta mission gift shop open, but it was always closed. The phone number... More

The churches (missions) are notable, though we never did find the advertised visitor center for any orientation, but we relied on the website for info.

I also take my visitors on a trip on the Mission trail. The missions in Ysleta, Socorro and San Elizario are excellent examples of old Southwest architects. There is a great little gift shop in the Socorro mission and some wonderful art galleries and shops in San Elizario. Along the 9 mile stretch there are various restaurants that would deserve...

Take the time to go to all three missions as as well as the San Elizario historic district (with a walking tour.) Nicely kept and cared for. Gives a real historic sense of place and culture. On your way back stop at the Tortilla Factory and have a fresh tortilla.

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.

We tried to do the trail while in El Paso the week before Xmas. Unfortunately two of the three churches were closed and we could only visit one. It would probably have been a worthwhile attraction if they all been open. It might be good to call the mission trail office to make sure you can get in
