Destination guide

Alpine's straight out of a spaghetti western

If there's any place that perfectly encompasses everything you've seen in a wild west movie, it's Alpine's southwest Texas landscape. This stunning slab of land is the high desert at its finest: vast plains for miles that are broken up with the Davis Mountains and the Chisos Mountains. Ya'll can drink in these views with most Alpine vacation rentals. The town itself sits at an elevation of 4,500 feet, and is the center of the Big Bend area's 1 million acres. Founded in the late 1800s, the town's maintained its traditional roots, with local mom-and-pop shops dominating the commerce.

Things to do

Rock it out with Alpine's gorgeous geological attractions

Take the fam to the Museum of the Big Bend to explore the area's rich history and Native American artifacts. Alpine's remote area makes McDonald Observatory a must; you'll feel like you could reach up and grab a star. Then you can nerd it out at the nearby Chihuahuan Desert Research Institute and botanical garden, and after that, hike on the Blue Creek Trail, which winds through dry creek beds and vivid, towering rocks. Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park are geological wonders with fossils, dinosaur bones and archeological sites that date back 10,000 years.


Say howdy to those rowdy students, and then buy them a beer

Alpine is home to Sul Ross State University, and as anyone who has lived in a college town knows, those rowdy students know how to liven up a joint and add some culture to boot. With Alpine vacation rentals, you've got bars, art galleries and performance spaces, plus a few venues that offer live music, mostly of the country genre. There's also an annual music festival, and several other quirky celebrations, including February's Texas Cowboy Poetry Gathering and April's Trappings of Texas convention. Finally, make sure you indulge in some classic Tex Mex cuisine at one of several Mexican restaurants.


The elevation helps ya beat that blazin' desert heat

Alpine is an exercise in extremes, from blazin' summer sun and temperatures often hitting the 100s, to snowfall in the winters, when the desert gives you the cold shoulder. While the sun is hot during the day, the cool air from the area's elevation cuts the heat right up. It's an arid climate and it's also a desert, so rainfalls are few and far between. However, if your Alpine vacation rental is between May to September, you might see a shower. The nice thing about this remote town is that no matter when you go, crowds aren't gonna be a problem.

Natural features

One look at this red desert and you'll think you're on Mars

Alpine is literally the high desert, perched on a plateau that's 4,500 feet high and surrounded by miles of nothingness in the Chihuahuan Desert. You've got cool views of the Davis Mountains to the north and the Chisos Mountains to the south, plus some random outcrops of red volcanic rock that'll make you wonder if you've bypassed Earth and landed on Mars. The wildlife watching is oh-so-good here, and you can see roadrunners, golden eagles, wild boars and (if you're lucky) a cougar. And maybe the official animal of Texas, the armadillo.
