Big Bend National Park

— 7 nights
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 Ghost Town Texas in Terlingua (about 1h 25 min away). There's still lots to do: trek along Lost Mine Trail, contemplate the long history of Hot Springs Historic District, explore the stunning scenery at Santa Elena Canyon, and see a world frozen in time at Terlingua.

For maps, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Big Bend National Park visit planning site.

In September, daily temperatures in Big Bend National Park can reach 92°F, while at night they dip to 71°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
