3 Amazing Places to Live in West Texas

West Texas is a land of wide-open spaces and big skies, with a small-town feel that is hard to find elsewhere. This region has lots of options for those looking for a new home, whether they are moving from the city or just looking to get away from it all.

The three places we have selected below are just a few of the many amazing places to live in West Texas. Let’s get going.

El Paso

El Paso is a city in Texas known for its great weather and culture. The city has a population of just over 679,000 people. The fact that El Paso is close to Mexico has helped it attract visitors from all over the world, making this a melting pot of sorts.

El Paso is also one of the safest cities in America, with a low crime rate compared to other cities in Texas. It is also home to many universities and colleges including the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), which has six campuses located throughout the city.

The following are some other reasons why El Paso is great:

  • It has a low cost of living compared to other cities in Texas. People are vying for one of the El Paso houses for sale all the time.
  • Its culture is rich due to its Spanish history.
  • There are many natural resources located close by such as the Rio Grande river and Hueco Mountains.


Odessa is a city in West Texas that offers many opportunities for those who are willing to take it. It is a city of more than 122,000 people and has been growing at a rapid pace, and it is not just the oil industry that keeps it going.

It is estimated that in the next 10 years, Odessa will grow by about 100,000 people. This is due to the fact that the U.S. economy in recent years had been doing well and allowing people to move to Texas in general. This will increase demand for housing and other essential services such as healthcare.

Overall, Odessa is an affordable city with low cost of living, good schools, and great opportunities for career growth. It’s also a great place to retire or start over.


Lubbock is a city in West Texas that is located in the South Plains region. It has a population of over 257,000 people.

Lubbock has a lot to offer its residents. A lot of attractions like parks, museums, and theaters are located within the city limits. It also has an international airport that connects it with other major cities in America and around the world.

What else makes Lubbock great?

  • Lubbock is known for its mild climate
  • The city’s economy relies on agriculture and manufacturing
  • The city is home to numerous universities, including Texas Tech University and Lubbock Christian University.
