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 Big Bend Ranch State Park and Lost Mine Trail will get you outdoors. When in Big Bend National Park, make a side trip to see Terlingua Trading Company in Terlingua, approximately 1h 25 min away. There's much more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Chisos Mountains, contemplate the long history of Hot Springs Historic District, play a few rounds at Lajitas Zipline, and make a trip to Abandoned Contrabando Movie Set.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Big Bend National Park road trip planning site .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 99°F, and evening lows to 76°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
