Big Bend National Park

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.
Spend the 2nd (Sun) exploring nature at Big Bend National Park. There's lots more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Chisos Mountains, hike along Lost Mine Trail, explore the striking landscape at The Window, and explore and take pictures at Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, read our Big Bend National Park travel planner.

Expect a daytime high around 99°F in July, and nighttime lows around 76°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
