El Paso's Bucket List

The Bucket List is a 2007 comedy film directed by Rob Reiner, written by Justin Zackham, and starring Academy Award-winners Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. The main plot follows two terminally ill men (portrayed by Nicholson and Freeman) on their road trip with a wish list of things to do before they “kick the bucket.”


You don’t have to be terminally ill to have a bucket list.  So, with the help of some friends, here are some suggestions for your El Paso Bucket List.  They are not in any particular order.  If you don’t see some of your favorite things to do here, but you’d like to share
