There's nothing quite like the feeling of warm sunlight on your face and soft sand in your boot. Head into the desert to enjoy the slow, sizzling artisanal and Minimalist art scenes in Marfa.


Marfa's Time Warp
The newcomers want to create an oasis away from the America they fled, and it's no surprise why they picked Marfa. It's in the middle of nowhere. A short history of the wonderfully weird town in Big Bend Country.

Marfa Essentials
Airstream lodging, gourmet food truck fare, contemporary art installations, and just a ghostly hint of paranormal phenomena. Find out where to stay, what to eat, and where to hang out.

Love Letter: El Cosmico
The 1956 Imperial Mansion trailer is one of five impeccably restored mobile homes parked on eighteen acres.
