Big Bend National Park

— 11 nights
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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Big Bend National Park: Terlingua (Ghost Town Texas, Terlingua Trading Company, &more). There's lots more to do: stroll through Lost Mine Trail, take in the awesome beauty at Emory Peak, explore the striking landscape at The Balanced Rock, and take in breathtaking views at Santa Elena Canyon.

For ratings, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Big Bend National Park road trip planning site.

Expect a daytime high around 92°F in September, and nighttime lows around 71°F.
