Press Release

November 2, 2010 - The soon to be launched Mission Trail Visitor Center to offer interactive shuttle-tour packages that range in price from $5 to $65. Weekend shuttle service begins November 12, 2010 and full tours start November 13, 2010. The unique offerings include pick-up at area hotels and cater to both visitors and residents and highlight the borderland’s unique history including our historic missions as well as art, education and entertainment.

Locations featured in the various Mission Trail Experience tours include the Ysleta and Socorro Missions, San Elizario Chapel, Mission Trail Visitor Center, San Elizario Artist and Historic District, Los Portales Museum, Veterans Memorial Museum, Old El Paso County (Billy the Kid) Jail, Licon Dairy, The Bookery, exclusive access to Casa Apodaca (housing El Paso’s first silent movie theatre), Tigua Indian Cultural Center, Speaking Rock Entertainment Center, El Paso Connection and area restaurants El Meson de Onate and El Bandido Cantina.

In addition, some highlights are sure to delight as they involve audience participation and the element of surprise! Old West “stagecoach-esque” hold-ups will have passengers “bartering” to stay out of jail and the traditional Tigua Round Dance involves guests in a time-honored cultural celebration. Some offerings will include the pageantry of traditional folklorico dancing and guests can stroll along the historic trail while being serenaded by the strum of traditional Spanish guitar and other musical stylings. The history of the Missions and other local history will be presented in a state of the art theatre and by professional tour guides along the Trail.

Through the cooperation of the Mission Trail Association, the Diocese of El Paso, the Tigua Nation, the San Elizario Genealogy and Historical Society, the Cities of El Paso and Socorro, the County of El Paso and the El Paso Art Association, all entities that have shaped the Mission Trail are represented and have a part in presenting the colorful history of the area which is home to many “firsts” in El Paso and in Texas as a whole.

The newly acquired 14-passenger shuttle van will also provide weekend shuttle service up and down the nine-mile corridor and will premiere with free rides for the month of November. Pick-up points include select downtown and airport hotels as well as the Mission Trail Visitor Center.
