A quiet, residential neighborhood, North Hills West in El Paso, Texas appeals to lovers of the outdoors. Situated in northeast El Paso about seven miles north of downtown El Paso, this neighborhood sits closer to New Mexico than any other in El Paso and also has the Franklin Mountains as its backyard. Because of its proximity to Fort Bliss and the Biggs Army Airfield, many involved with the military also choose to settle in this neighborhood. While you'll have to drive a little to reach any shopping or dining options, if you want the pristine beauty of the desert and mountains within easy reach, check out the well-maintained 1970s-style homes of North Hills West.
