The Big Bend area, which makes up the southwestern part of the state, is mostly devoid of large settlements.
Its vast territory is home to a delightfully wild border country, with vast open prairies and endless desert in abundance.
Despite the fact that it mainly consists of a desolate and inhospitable landscape, in the far west you can find the magnificent Guadalupe Mountains National Park, and the Permian Basin is one of the largest oil producing centers in the country.
Although there are not many famous cities here, El Paso on the US-Mexico border is a great place to visit. This place has a wonderful city center with many interesting historical attractions and a lively nightlife.
However, the main attraction is Big Bend National Park, which boasts stunning landscapes and many amazing panoramas.
The vast, rugged landscapes are ideal for great hikes. Cycling and kayaking through the impressive canyons of the Rio Grande is an unforgettable experience and vivid emotions.
Hot Tip: A great way to get to know the park is by boat, and various river trips can be booked through the Panther Junction Park Headquarters.
