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.
Get out of town with these interesting Big Bend National Park side-trips: Terlingua (Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center & Ghost Town Texas). And it doesn't end there: explore the stunning scenery at Santa Elena Canyon, contemplate the long history of Hot Springs Historic District, trek along Lost Mine Trail, and explore the striking landscape at The Balanced Rock.

To find ratings, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Big Bend National Park trip builder.

In March, daytime highs in Big Bend National Park are 80°F, while nighttime lows are 53°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
