The Ideal Location
At 4,000 feet in elevation, we enjoy a smog-free, high desert location above the escarpment of the Rio Grand valley. We are located in east El Paso County, where Texas, New Mexico and Mexico meet.
Horizon has easy access to Ciudad Juárez via the Paso del Norte International Bridge. Cd. Juárez is a thriving city of over one million people. It is a major manufacturing and industrial center with strong trade relations with El Paso and the rest of the United States.
Horizon is also within an hour’s drive of the state of New Mexico. The Land of Enchantment offers a host of cultural, historical, and outdoor activities. Some of New Mexico's best mountain resort areas – famous for snow skiing, boating and hiking – are just three hours away.
The Horizon area is generally bounded by the El Paso City limits to the west, Interstate-10 to the south, the Hueco Mountains to the east, and Montana Avenue and military land to the north.
The developed urban area centers on the Town of Horizon City. The incorporated township has an area of more than five-and-a-half square miles. It is located about three miles east of the El Paso city limits and about two miles northeast of I-10.
Traveling from El Paso on I-10, take the Eastlake exit and follow the road for three miles. You can also take the Horizon exit. Horizon Boulevard continues past the main urban area all the way to Lake El Paso and the foothills of the Hueco Mountains. Access to the area is also available from Montana Avenue along Ascension Drive. Ascension is a local north-south route, which connects to Horizon Boulevard.
If you are coming from the El Paso airport, we are 25 minutes away, via I-10.
Our Good Life
Our core communities offer all the advantages of small-town living, friendliness, safety, good schools, local shops, and peace and quiet. Horizon’s residents know each other and watch out for one another. Neighbors can meet up at the country club, which offers an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, swimming pool, elegant dining, and entertainment. Old-fashioned community values are alive and well here.
Big City Amenities
The city of El Paso is less than a 15 minute drive west of Horizon. Some of El Paso’s newest shopping malls, outlets, and restaurants are located on El Paso’s rapidly growing eastside. For a more exotic shopping experience, cross the Zaragoza International Bridge and enjoy what Mexico has to offer. We are also 10 minutes from Mission Valley, once settled by the Spanish in the late 16th century. The old churches that line the historic Mission Trail mark the birthplace of El Paso. And with such close access to I-10, road trips spanning the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific Ocean is easy.
Here in the high desert, our average high summer temperature is 95 degrees. The average winter high is about 60 degrees. Low humidity and moderate rainfall, 8.65 inches annually, combine to create an ideal climate.
In winter, sunshine and warmth are aplenty. Concerned you might miss the snow? Don't worry. Some winters deliver up to six inches of snowfall overnight (the all time record for El Paso was 22.4 inches in 1987). But wake up early to build your snowman. It will probably melt by noon.
