Dell City is a great place to LIVE, TEACH and GROW!
Known as the “Valley of Hidden Waters,” this quaint little farming and ranching community lies 13 miles off of US Highway 62-180 and is nestled at the base of Guadalupe Mountains National Park. It is approximately 80 miles between El Paso, TX and Carlsbad, NM. Our small size and rural values make it an ideal place to raise a family. Our residents are self-sufficient, resilient and independent. Within the community you will find:
Mild winters and an abundance of sunny days are assets to this “desert oasis.” Average daytime temperatures range between 50 and 60 degrees, from November to late February. Spring ushers in 70 to 80 degree temperatures and an occasional west Texas wind storm, from March to late April. Summer heats up with temperatures in the mid 90’s to lower 100’s, but an occasional summer thunderstorm or rain shower will take the edge off of the desert dryness and fill the air with a fresh washed desert aroma. Fall temperatures drop back to the 70’s in late September.
Whether you are into sunsets, star gazing, bird watching or the natural splendor of the Chihuahuan Desert, there are numerous hiking and camping opportunities just a short distance in any direction. We are a gateway to Guadalupe Mountains National Park and Lincoln National Forest. Carlsbad Caverns National Park. White Sands National Monument, Big Bend National Park, Balmorhea State Park, Davis Mountains State Park, and McDonald’s Observatory are just a few attractions close enough for fabulous weekend get-a-ways. Shopping and dining in El Paso and skiing or horse racing in New Mexico are also favorite attractions for area residents.
