      I lived off of Holmsley Trail, in the Lower Valley El Paso area from 2005 to 2010. The community median home price is a bit less than El Paso at $99,000, as is the renting at $400. I liked residing in the Lower Valley to get away from downtown, yet it was still just six miles away from my job at the Fort Bliss United States Army Post. Fort Bliss houses 16 Army units, and should be on your things to do list when family and friends visit. Schooling is readily available in the area, including the Cedar Grove Elementary and Riverside High School. My son went on to start college at El Paso Community College, and has a year remaining at the University of Texas El Paso (UTEP).

      A couple of spots to be certain to see include the El Paso Museum of Art, and El Paso Saddleblanket. The museum has different exhibitions throughout the year, but remember that is not open on Monday's. If you are in the active military, the admission is free of charge. The El Paso Saddleblanket has been a part of El Paso for 44 years, and includes two acres of items to buy. The acrylic blankets that my family and I purchased are irreplaceable. Yet my favorite keepsake items purchased were the Casas Grandes, Tarahumara, and Mata Ortis pots that my family still showcase in our living area.

      The one night life event I miss upon moving from El Paso is the Alfresco Fridays. Beginning in May through September, we made a point of attending the free music series held downtown. The best part is the are local, and the type of music was different weekly, so my family was exposed to all music varieties.

      Finally, restaurants were abound in the area. My family and I prefer steak, Mexican, and sushi. Our favorite establishments were the Cattleman's Steakhouse, L and J Café, and Koze Teppan Grill. At Cattleman's, I was never able to finish off the "Cowgirl" 32 ounce steak, but had fun trying. Go for the "Big Jim" special which is a scrambled egg with chile at L and J Cafe. I know when guests stopped by they were glad they did. My personal favorite is the Carppacio tuna salad at the Koze Tappan Grill. It is light, but satisfying when I had a taste for sushi.
