I was looking for a small town to live in near El Paso, Texas, and Chaparral, New Mexico, seemed to fit the bill at first glance, but to be truthful, I have been a bit disappointed. First, the good news. It is a small town, which is what we wanted and the living expenses are pretty minimal compared to other places I've lived. The weather is also fairly moderate and pleasant with mild winters, although the summers can be hot and dry. Another good thing about Chaparral is that you are close to the Franklin Mountains State Park, and we do enjoy picknicking there on occasion.
The downside of living in Chaparral is that there isn't anything here and no place to shop other than the Family Dollar store and no place to eat out unless you make the half-hour drive to El Paso. Housing is affordable, but finding high-quality housing is a problem. Schools are also a problem, with low test scores in the public schools, forcing teachers to spend time with children who need more help. This affects the teaching environment as a whole.
