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. Step out of the city life by going to Chisos Mountains and Santa Elena Canyon. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Lost Mine Trail, take in breathtaking views at Boquillas Canyon, don't miss a visit to Abandoned Contrabando Movie Set, and take in the awesome beauty at Emory Peak.

For more things to do, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, go to the Big Bend National Park trip maker tool .

In October, plan for daily highs up to 87°F, and evening lows to 63°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
