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.
Change things up with a short trip to Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center in Terlingua (about 1h 35 min away). There's much more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Chisos Mountains, trek along Closed Canyon, explore the stunning scenery at Boquillas Canyon, and cruise along Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive.

For photos, ratings, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Big Bend National Park online vacation planner.

March in Big Bend National Park sees daily highs of 80°F and lows of 53°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
