Area Day Trips Introduction

One of the many attributes of Marathon is its central location to many points of interest in the Big Bend Region.

The purpose of this section is to offer suggestions and a sample itinerary on the many points of interest in the Big Bend Region within a day’s drive of Marathon Texas. The main attraction in the Big Bend Region of West Texas is of course Big Bend National Park, followed by the towns of Alpine, Marfa, Ft. Davis, Terlingua, Study Butte, Lajitas, each having their own unique features and attractions. Big Bend National Park was recently awarded the designation of Gold Tier DarkSky Park as recognized by the International Dark-Sky Association.

We invite you to explore this section, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

Hope you find this section helpful and informative for your Big Bend Region planning needs!

Sincerely,
The Marathon Chamber of Commerce
