Have you entertained serious thoughts about living in areas that are rich in Spanish influence? Do you want to part of the largest bilingual and binational work force in the Western Hemisphere?
Are you looking to live in an area that has job opportunities from many Fortune 500 companies? Are you a patriotic American that would like to live near world class military facilities? Do you want to be involved in law enforcement that helps protect United States citizens? If you answered yes to at least a couple of these questions, you may want to move to El Paso.
Since El Paso sits on the Mexican border, one would expect it to have some Spanish influence. It shares the border with its sister city Ciudad Juarez (one of the largest cities in Mexico). Although in Texas, El Paso is several hundreds of miles away from Austin, Dallas and Houston. Displays of Spanish architecture can be found throughout many of the city’s many neighborhoods. Every El Paso hosts Fiesta de las Flores, which emphasizes their Hispanic heritage and culture. According to the Census Bureau, over 70% of the population of El Paso can speak Spanish.
With so many English and Spanish speaking people, it makes sense that numerous companies are in El Paso. Call centers in need of bilingual workers employ thousands of people in the El Paso area. Publically traded Western Refining, Helen of Troy Limited and El Paso Electric are based there. Dozens of Fortune 500 companies in a variety of industries also have regional offices there. El Paso also has a couple dozen of the top 500 Hispanic owned companies in the United States.
If you want a job in law enforcement, El Paso is home to many local as well as federal agencies. These federal agencies include the Drug Enforcement Agency and the U.S. Border Patrol. El Paso is also a nice place if you like the military or are interested in the defense industry. Fort Bliss, Biggs Army Airfield and William Beaumont Army Medical Center are located there. The defense industry employs tens of thousands of people, playing an important role in the local economy. The job opportunities alone may be enough to get you looking for El Paso movers to help you relocate.
As far as entertainment is concerned, there is no shortage of activities to do in the El Paso area. There are many festivals held there every year for the residents who enjoy a variety of music. These include the El Paso Downtown Street Festival, Sun City Music Festival and Neon Desert Music Festival. If you enjoy the performing arts, you can partake in the El Paso Ballet and Symphony Orchestra. El Paso also has performing arts theaters, museums and gardens for the public to enjoy.
