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 these side-trips from Big Bend National Park: Terlingua (Ghost Town Texas & Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center). Next up on the itinerary: explore the stunning scenery at Santa Elena Canyon, cruise along Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive, mingle with the ghosts of the past at Terlingua, and take in the awesome beauty at Chisos Mountains.

To find maps, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Big Bend National Park online trip itinerary builder.

Expect a daytime high around 80°F in March, and nighttime lows around 53°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
