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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Terlingua (Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center & Ghost Town Texas) and Big Bend Ranch State Park (in Presidio). The adventure continues: take in the awesome beauty at Chisos Mountains, trek along The Window Trail, steep yourself in history at Hot Springs Historic District, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Lost Mine Trail.

For more things to do, maps, photos, and other tourist information, read Big Bend National Park holiday website .

In April in Big Bend National Park, expect temperatures between 87°F during the day and 59°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
