Looking for a hotel & things to do within 25 miles of Fort Bliss. We will have 4 days in June to spend in El Paso. No kids, just adults. We enjoy a variety of activities, outdoors, museums, etc.
It may be HOT, so be sure you always carry water. For hiking, McKelligon Canyon and Hueco Tanks. Chamizal National Memorial & Culture Center might be worth a visit. Day trip to White Sands National Monument, but, again, do this only as a morning hike and carry plenty of water (people have died out there). There are several observatories near Alamogordo. A "touristic" attraction is Old Mesilla, near Las Cruces, NM. Safe travels.
Friday through Sunday the hotels near the airport, and also close to fort Bliss, often have very good rates. A lot of choices in that area.
