    For Fun

    The Big Bend region is full of adventure and places to explore! Whether you want to hike the national and state park, or hike right out your front door on the resort's 27,000 acres! We also have river access so you can kayak, paddleboard, or just go swimming whenever you like! Like mountain biking? We have hundreds of miles of trails to explore. Like to play music? The eclectic town down the road of "Terlingua" has some restaurants and bars that feature open mic nights for local musicians! 

    There are more restaurant and shopping opportunities as close as 12 miles away.  A full day trip could take in the Big Bend National Park, Big Bend Ranch State Park, Fort Davis, and its historical park and town; the McDonald Observatory; art, shopping, and the Sul Ross State University in Alpine; the Marfa Lights and the town of Marfa; and much more!
