The crown jewel of Rio Grande Valley parks, Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park well deserves its status as headquarters of the World Birding Center. Birders across the nation know Bentsen as a treasure trove of Valley specialties those birds found nowhere else in the United States but deepest South Texas and Mexican vagrants rare visitors from across the Rio Grande. The 760-acre Bentsen-RGV State Park, together with over 1,700 acres of adjoining federal refuge land, promises year-round nature adventures in the richest birding area north of the Mexican border.

First time there this morning, loved the place. Trails are well kept and the people are friendly. Will definitely be going back.

Easy hike or bike, do it now, while it's still cool in the Valley! :)
You can rent bikes there or bring your own.
If you have binoculars take them, this park is great for bird watching.
