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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Terlingua and Hot Springs Historic District. Visiting Chisos Mountains and Lost Mine Trail will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Big Bend National Park side-trips: Terlingua (Terlingua Trading Company & Ghost Town Texas). There's lots more to do: take in breathtaking views at Santa Elena Canyon, hike along The Window Trail, get your bearings at Rio Grande Village Campground, and make a trip to Abandoned Contrabando Movie Set.

For ratings, reviews, maps, and tourist information, read Big Bend National Park online tour planner .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 100°F, and evening lows to 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
