Did you know? Big Bend National Park is one of the largest national parks in the United States, and it’s celebrating its 75th year anniversary! The park is located in southwest Texas, about 7-8 hours from Central Texas. It includes the entire Chisos mountain range, as well as a large portion of the Chihuahuan Desert.
Experience Far West Texas with fun for the whole family at Lajitas Golf Resort . The resort has beautiful, historical rooms with touches that will remind you of the Wild West. Resort activities include birding, zip lining, stand-up paddleboarding, shooting range, horseback riding, mountain biking, spa experiences and more.
If you’re a golfer, look no further for a once-in-a-lifetime view: Black Jack’s Crossing, Lajita’s golf course, is voted #1 in Texas by the Dallas Morning News for its sweeping views of the Chisos mountains.
