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.
You'll get in some beach time at Terlingua and Chisos Mountains. Museum-lovers will get to explore Big Bend Ranch State Park and Santa Elena Canyon. Go for a jaunt from Big Bend National Park to Terlingua to see Many Stones about 1h 15 min away. There's much more to do: examine the collection at Big Bend National Park - Fossil Bone Exhibit, steep yourself in history at Hot Springs Historic District, stroll through Lost Mine Trail, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Castolon Historic District.
