Exploring the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail
Bird Watching along the Texas Gulf Coast
The Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail is ecotourism at its best.

Reaching from the western Louisiana border with Texas all the way down to the Rio Grande, this trail is perfect for the birding enthusiast.
Home to more bird species than any other state in the country, Texas is the ideal escape for any level of bird watcher. The trail itself is an impressive collection of over 40 hiking trails, encompassing more than 300 birding sites in the form of bird sanctuaries, nature preserves and wildlife refuges.
Thanks to hotspots like the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge, the Bolivar Penninsula, and the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail will have you saying, “Hail to the trial” in no time.
The Gulf Coast also has more than its fair share of Best Western hotels in Texas, stretching from the Houston metropolitan area down the coast to Texas' border with Mexico. Enjoy day of bird watching, and hang up your binoculars at a Best Western hotel.
