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 outdoors at Santa Elena Canyon and Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center. Change things up with a short trip to Indian Head Trail in Terlingua (about 1h 20 min away). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Lost Mine Trail, take in the awesome beauty at Chisos Mountains, hike along The Window Trail, and explore the stunning scenery at Boquillas Canyon.

In April, daily temperatures in Big Bend National Park can reach 87°F, while at night they dip to 59°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
