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.
Step out of Big Bend National Park with an excursion to Ghost Town Texas in Terlingua--about 1h 25 min away. There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Chisos Mountains, mingle with the ghosts of the past at Terlingua, take in breathtaking views at Boquillas Canyon, and take in the dramatic natural features at The Balanced Rock.

Livingston to Big Bend National Park is an approximately 11- hour car ride. You can also do a combination of car and flight. When traveling from Livingston in May, plan for a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Big Bend National Park: temperatures range from 93°F by day to 66°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sun) so you can go by car back home.
