El Paso’s original shopping district has long been the heart and center of downtown activity and is reflected in the designation of the El Centro District. El Paso Street is the City’s first and oldest street, rich with history, culture and shops, it stretches all the way to the border.
Open-air market style shops line the streets of El Centro. The district hugs the border of Mexico as if old friends, co-existing for over 150 years. Cultures have blended in the district to create a multi-cultural American atmosphere.
Shopping options not only pepper El Paso street, but can be found all over Downtown, from Stanton Street to hidden gems all over Downtown. Border shopping includes clothing deals, boutiques, thrifting options, and more. We encourage to explore!
