Texas has no shortage of beautiful views and here is one that should be on the very top of your list. Big Spring State Park has a hilltop bench that gives visitors a one of a kind view. The 382-acre park is great any time of day but sitting on the perfectly placed bench at sunset is always a special treat.
The climb to the viewpoint is a short and easy one which makes it low-risk and high reward. There are also a variety of cliffs that you can sit on to enjoy the view of the city but the cute bench adds an extra layer of comfort. From the top of the hill, you can see the entire city of Big Spring as well as tons of beautiful nature. On the way up you might see a pair of swings that also offer great views.
The park has a pavilion that you can rent out for $70 a day so you and your friends can hang out while surrounded by all the scenery that the park has to offer. Cyclists are welcome at the park and there are trails for them to make it to the tippy top.
