This year I finally got to visit Marfa, Texas. While it wasn’t exactly what I expected, it lived up to it’s reputation. It’s basically a tiny Texas town that isn’t much too much to look at on the surface. Once you start walking around the town and seeing all the hidden beauty and art you’ll know why people visit there. There’s a feeling and a vibe that I can’t quite put my finger on in Marfa. It’s a feeling of magic and wonder. Here are my recommendations on what to check out while in Marfa.
Thunderbird Hotel: The Thunderbird is an amazing small boutique hotel. The rooms are quaint and clean. They all surround a pool with plenty of seating for outdoor relaxing. It’s modern and inviting at the same time. Be aware that the check in office is across the street and there are no TV’s in the room.
El Cosmico: This is simply a cool place to visit, even if you are not staying the night. You can pick between a trailer, yurt, teepee, tent, or you can self camp. The accommodations are pretty eclectic and cool at the same time. Be sure that your lodging has it’s own bathroom if that’s something that’s important to you. Some of the lodgings have outdoor showers or shared toilets. As well as if you book here between November and March keep in mind that evening temperatures may fall below 32 degrees.
