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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Terlingua (Ghost Town Texas, Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center, & more) and Big Bend Ranch State Park (in Presidio). And it doesn't end there: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Chisos Mountains, trek along Lost Mine Trail, explore the striking landscape at The Balanced Rock, and cruise along Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive.

To find traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Big Bend National Park day trip website .

In July, daytime highs in Big Bend National Park are 99°F, while nighttime lows are 76°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
