Splendid SolitudeCouples who are eager to get off the grid and spend some time alone, few places in the country offer solitude that can compete with that in Big Bend National Park, a 1,251-square-mile reserve known for its dramatic red rock canyons. Explore the landscape’s well-marked trails on foot or on a private horseback trip booked through Lajitas Stables. Get out on the water on the Rio Grande, river float with a star-lit campfire dinner.
