Resaca De La Palma State Park
Hike under the Stars on Texas’s Gulf Coast
Boasting the largest plot of native habitat in the World Birding Center Network, Resaca de la Palma State Park in Brownsville is brimming with birds, butterflies, native flora and other species. With over eight miles of trails, you can hop on a ranger-led nature hike both during the day, and at night. The evening events are a prime time to spot nocturnal creatures in the park, as well as take a walk under a canopy of stars. If you are visiting in November, the annual memorial illumination at the Resaca de la Palma battlefield is a moving memorial of some 8,000 candles honoring veterans of the Mexican War.
