What is decidedly and uniquely a showcase of El Paso? Beyond food, beyond shows, it is this panoramic vista that is astonishingly different and hard to find anywhere else. We love our mountains, but the Flatlanders will love them even more when you get to see a vast terrain atop the Wyler Aerial Tramway. I took my oldest son and... More

Anybody visiting El Paso needs to go to the tramway. You can take the tram to the TV station on top of the Franklin mountain range and see two countries and three states! If your physical abilities permit, you can hike two hiking trails that start at the station, you can hike around the mountain top and take the tram... More

It had been twenty years since I had taken a look at El Paso and it has definitely grown a lot. This is a good place to observe the magnitude of the city including Juarez and a good place to see the Border wall. It is just interesting.

What a great experience at reasonable costs. The tramway maintains spectacular views over El Paso and a bit of Mexico. It can get a bit windy at the top of the Tramway, so it would pay to bring a windbreaker. The day we went (in September) the day was hot, and there were a few people waiting. There is not... More

Definitely worth the $8 price tag! Best views of El Paso and New Mexico! Great place to take some nice photos. Interesting display of previous trams to the peak! Small but quaint gift shop at the top.

This is a good stop for the entire family. I would recommend that you check their website and also call first to verify they are open. Also, bring a coat. It can be cold up top. On busy days there can be parking issues, I would recommend going as soon as they open. We went on a busy weekend and... More

Visited late afternoon in summer. The queue wasn't that long, but as the cable cars only take 6 people it does take some time. It's a nice pleasant ride and the views from the top are great. There is a small gift shop and restroom at the top, but nothing else to do and not much space to walk around.... More

The Tramway provides a great view of El Paso, Juarez, and Sunland. It's something you should definitely do once if you visit El Paso. You can hike up the mountain, too and take the tramway down.

Check it out. Great sights. The store at the top has room for growth. Once up there space is very limited.
