If you follow Annie’s Adventures on Facebook or Instagram, you’re in for a cavalcade of El Paso awesomeness. She’s been showcasing local gems, emerging hotspots and food deals for a while now and will likely continue to shower love over all things Chuco town.
“I used to say there’s nothing to do here, this place is boring, I wanted to leave,” said Annie Perez. “But it’s all about your attitude; I decided to change my attitude about the city, that’s why I started Annie’s Adventures.”
Quick to respond to questions on social media, Perez has noticed El Pasoans’ increasing interest in what their city has to offer.
“Our businesses are growing and the more that people go and support them, the longer they’re going to be around and more things will come,” Perez said.
Perez suggests checking out Chuco Relic, an El Paso souvenir store with unique gifts, and the Lee and Beulah Moor Children’s Home if you want to give back to the community. For local art, the graffiti murals on Third Street and Cotton Street in South Central El Paso are a must-see.
“Join the El Paso adventure,” Perez said. “You’ll find places that you didn’t even know existed.”
