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.
Get in touch with nature at Lost Mine Trail and Big Bend Ranch State Park. Step out of Big Bend National Park to go to Terlingua and see Terlingua Trading Company, which is approximately 1h 25 min away. And it doesn't end there: play a few rounds at Lajitas Zipline, steep yourself in history at Hot Springs Historic District, see a world frozen in time at Terlingua, and don't miss a visit to Abandoned Contrabando Movie Set.

In July, daily temperatures in Big Bend National Park can reach °F, while at night they dip to °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
