Visit Marfa, Texas
Tough to Get Here. Tougher to Explain. But Once You Get Here, You Get It.
It’s more than just a place. It’s a state of mind. Where you’ll find tortillas and teepees, Warhol and beer gardens. Where wide-open spaces evoke meditation and mountains invite morning hikes. It’s live music, star gazing, film festivals, art galleries, mystery lights and small bites. It’s where Matthew McConaughey and Beyoncé escape. It’s where Anthony Bourdain dined and Rick Bass wrote. It’s where Giant and There Will Be Blood were filmed. It’s Marfa.
You’ve heard of it, but have you been?
With a population around 1,800, Marfa is a walkable Texas destination where the pace of life slows down and you find yourself appreciating the simple things in life. Go see the Marfa Lights, tour Marfa art galleries, and hike the many state and national parks in the Big Bend region. They say it can be tough to get to, but when you arrive in this peaceful desert surrounded by the Texas mountains, sprawling ranches, and stunning sunsets, you’ll know, it’s worth it.
