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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Terlingua (Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center & Ghost Town Texas). The adventure continues: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Chisos Mountains, trek along S Rim Trail, stroll through The Window Trail, and take a memorable drive along Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive.

To see maps, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Big Bend National Park trip itinerary planner.

Expect a daytime high around 80°F in March, and nighttime lows around 53°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
