Exploring Big Bend National Park

Nestled in southwest Texas on the Mexican border, Big Bend National Park has long stood as an absolute gem of a travel destination. The massive 800,000-acre national park includes a variety of habitats, including rivers, deserts, and even the entire Chisos mountain range, which makes it the only national park in the entire United States to have a full mountain range contained entirely inside the national park!

There is plenty to do in Big Bend National Park, but the highlights give a quality illustration of its allure. Hiking the Santa Elena nature trail, kayaking in the Rio Grande, exploring the Boquillas Canyon, and cruising along the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive are some of the more popular park activities. Camping spots are plentiful, but a recommended place to pitch your tents is near Mariscal, considered the most serene of the Park River Canyons.

Whatever type of adventure you’re looking for, Big Bend National Park is a fantastic destination for it!
