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: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Chisos Mountains, explore the striking landscape at The Balanced Rock, explore the stunning scenery at Santa Elena Canyon, and stroll through Lost Mine Trail.

To find traveler tips, maps, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Big Bend National Park online tour itinerary planner.
