| ||West Texas is made up of two areas, one known as the "Panhandle Plains" and the other "Big Bend Country". The Panhandle Plains is a wild, open land of plains and stark beauty, the Panhandle region attracts those who seek solitude. Lakes provide a refreshing break from the arid surroundings, while canyons offer colorful vistas that rival the Grand Canyon. Stop by Amarillo, Lubbock, or Abilene for some of the best barbecue in Texas. |
Big Bend Country: Wide open spaces, colorful cacti, and lonely tumbleweeds define Big Bend Country, where the rugged desert beauty stirs your imagination. If you’re looking for solitude and a place to see more stars than you ever knew existed, this is the place for you. Enjoy panoramic views of the Chisos Mountains and the Rio Grande at Big Bend National Park. Then head to El Paso, the Texan city next to Mexico and New Mexico, for a multicultural experience.
