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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Stillwell Store - Hallie's Hall of Fame Museum and Fort Leaton. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Chihuahuan Desert and Rio Grande Village. Change things up with these side-trips from Big Bend National Park: Big Bend Ranch State Park (in Presidio) and Barton Warnock Environmental Education Center (in Terlingua). There's still lots to do: trek along Rio Grande Village Nature Trail and take in the awesome beauty at Chisos Mountains.

In January, daily temperatures in Big Bend National Park can reach 61°F, while at night they dip to 38°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
