Sightseeing
Scenic Drive, this drive isn't one you'll need to map out hours for. It's only two miles long. But those two miles allow you to see El Paso and Juarez, even some of New Mexico, from a spectacular vantage. It's also very close to McKelligon Canyon. The draw, the importance of Scenic Drive is difficult to explain until you drive it.

Also called the Plaza de los Lagartos, San Jacinto Plaza lies at the heart of El Paso's historic downtown district. In fact, the name lagartos roughly translates into "alligator" and at one time there were actual live alligators in a pond that was once here. When the park was established, the owners created a large area for these crocodilians, however they were removed finally in 1975 due to vandals harming them. Today, the plaza pays homage to the alligators in the form of a sculpture which replaced the pond. In December, the plaza hosts the official Christmas Tree Lighting and during the rest of the year, the shade under the trees provides ample refuge from the Southwest heat.
