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.
When in Big Bend National Park, make a side trip to see Ghost Town Texas in Terlingua, approximately Terlingua away. There's much more to do: explore the stunning scenery at Santa Elena Canyon, trek along S Rim Trail, steep yourself in history at Hot Springs Historic District, and take in the dramatic natural features at The Balanced Rock.

To find photos, more things to do, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Big Bend National Park trip maker app.

In March, plan for daily highs up to 80°F, and evening lows to 53°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
