Big Bend National Park ©
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.
Step out of Big Bend National Park with an excursion to Ghost Town Texas in Terlingua--about 1h 25 min away. There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Chisos Mountains, tour the pleasant surroundings at S Rim Trail, take a memorable drive along Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive, and hike along The Window Trail.

For photos, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Big Bend National Park tour builder tool .

December in Big Bend National Park sees daily highs of 65°F and lows of 41°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
