    Ft. Bliss questions

    Advertisements
    There is a possibility that DH and I will PCS to Ft. Bliss and I wanted to know how you girls like it there. I've already been looking at housing off base. I was just wondering how the cities are, how the base is, is there any good entertainment in the area? DH and I like going to Casinos, are there any? Anyways anything will be helpful! TIA!!

    el paso is getting pretty big with all the construction going on with bliss, overall i would say it is a nice place to live its got alittle bit of everything
    ok now speaking rock casino is nothing like vegas but it helps pass the time and its fun, in the winter a fun place to visit is ruidoso, nm you and your dh can rent a cozy cabin and go skiing or tubing which is super fun!
    being that i am from el paso feel free to pm if you have any other questions

    Thanks! It's going to be awhile from now that we can probably go but I want to get a head start. DH is looking to have a career in that area when he gets out of the military so it would be nice to get stationed there and make sure thats where we want to settle down at. Well thanks again and I'll keep in touch!

    It's not bad. Def not East Tx but it's a nice place. Don't know much about the entertainment aspect as I get way too tired to go out and do a lot of stuff.
    Trying to figure it all out...

    There really is no entertainment. There's only 1 casino I know of and that's in New Mexico. They have movie theaters, malls and an outlet mall. Other than that not much to it.
    I'm sorry if I sound negative about it, I've really tried to think of positive things about El Paso but it's hard. Coming from a big city and then moving to a not so big city, it's a big adjustment.
