"The Lifeline of the Westside"
N. Mesa Street is the main road of the westside of town. It spans from downtown, all across the westside and finally ends near the Texas, New Mexico border. The street is very long and is almost exclusively part of a commercial district. You can find just about every type of fast food chain along this street. It is also runs next to the University of Texas at El Paso, so you can find a variety of nightspots in the area. Overall, the street is very clean and well taken care of as it is always quite busy. This of course does mean that it is prone to heavy traffic, but it is a small price to pay for the shopping convenience.
