Marfa is a crazy place. You have to go there to understand what that means. Its a town of less than 2,000 people and yet a center for contemporary minimalist art. It is located between the Davis Mountains and Big Bend National Park, not far from the Texas / Mexico border.

The combination of remote country and arts attrackts excentric people that have made the town their own when they decided to stay. Talk to the locals and hear the stories of how they ended up there. Some are locals, others from far away who decided to stay.

The city has some beautiful buildings that were built in the 50s and 60s and have been preserved perfectly by a combination of the dry climate and people who care about whats theirs while right next door is the ruin of what used to be a small home.

The Cosmico is a infamous campground that is worth staying at. You can stay in your own vehicle or opt for a restored vintage trailer or even a tipi if the mood strikes you.

The Thunderbird Motel is a great place to stay if you are there during the hot summer months and cannot survive without air conditioning.

Also do not miss the farmers market for some amazing breakfast burritos and freshly brewed coffee that will get your day started.
