Situated where the Rio Grande River takes a big southerly dip in West Texas, Big Bend National Park covers a massive expanse of desert, woodlands, and grasslands full of rivers, limestone canyons, and high mountains. Nearly 2,000 species of plant and animal life call this place home.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Terlingua and Museum of the Big Bend. Step out of the city life by going to Lajitas Zipline and Chisos Mountains. Go for a jaunt from Big Bend National Park to Presidio to see Big Bend Ranch State Park about 1h 05 min away. Spend the 26th (Sat) exploring nature at Big Bend National Park. The adventure continues: hike along Lost Mine Trail, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Emory Peak, contemplate the long history of Hot Springs Historic District, and make a trip to Abandoned Contrabando Movie Set.

In May, daily temperatures in Big Bend National Park can reach 93°F, while at night they dip to 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
