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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Terlingua and Hot Springs Historic District. Escape the urban bustle at Big Bend Ranch State Park and Lost Mine Trail. There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Chisos Mountains, don't miss a visit to Abandoned Contrabando Movie Set, take a memorable drive along Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive, and tee off at Lajitas Zipline.

To see ratings, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Big Bend National Park online holiday planner .

In March, daytime highs in Big Bend National Park are 80°F, while nighttime lows are 53°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
