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.
Visiting Dug Out Wells Picnic Area and Nature Trail and Santa Elena Canyon will get you outdoors. Terlingua and Castolon Historic District will appeal to history buffs. There's still lots to do: tee off at Lajitas Zipline, contemplate the long history of Homer Wilson Ranch, make a trip to Abandoned Contrabando Movie Set, and trek along Mule Ears Spring Trail.

For ratings, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Big Bend National Park trip itinerary planning tool .

In June in Big Bend National Park, expect temperatures between 100°F during the day and 75°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 6th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
