Palo Duro Canyon State Park
11450 State Hwy Park Rd 5, Canyon, (806) 488-2227, tpwd.texas.gov
Did you know that the second largest canyon in the country is right here in Texas? Well, now you do. Before you put the Grand Canyon on your bucket list, hit up Palo Duro for a smaller but just as grand experience. Here you’ll be able to camp, hike, go horseback riding (yikes!) and bird watch. Stop by in the summer for an outdoor theater performance of TEXAS (yes, really).
