Palo Duro Canyon Is The Single Best State Park In Texas And It’s Just Waiting To Be Explored
While “best” is an inherently subjective word, we can’t say we disagree with Travel + Leisure‘s pick for the best state park in Texas. The iconic Palo Duro Canyon – second in size only to the Grand Canyon itself – received the prestigious title, and its vast red rocks and endless miles of trails place the park squarely at the top of any Texan’s bucket list.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
