Situated on the boundary with Mexico along the Rio Grande is Big Bend National Park, a place where countries and cultures meet.

From desert to mountain environments, the park hosts some of the most spectacular diversity of plants and animals. According to the National Park Service, the park provides the lifeblood for more than 450 species of birds, 56 species of reptiles, 75 species of mammals, and 11 species of amphibians.

Adventure enthusiasts will enjoy plenty of thrills. Go for a hike to embrace the beauty of this park on about 200 miles of hiking trails; spend the day on the water and reap the benefits of their hundred miles of kayaking, explore the backcountry – go horseback riding, backpacking, mountain biking and bird watching.

For those of you who would rather spend your day at the park relaxing, go stargazing, embark on a beautiful scenic drive, or head to Landford Hot Springs and ease your stresses away.
