Saying Marfa is off the beaten path would be an understatement. Roughly 200 miles of drive time from nearby airports, it’s truly off the beaten path in the southwest.
Located in the middle of nowhere Texas, Marfa moves at its own pace- stores are open when they want to be. Marfa’s remoteness is the perfect cure for those who need a break from the pace of city life.
In addition to wide-open spaces, desert campgrounds and a sky full of stars, Marfa is also known for its cultural scene and food options ranging from fine dining establishments to quirky food trucks and in-home eateries.
Knowing all this, is it any wonder I’m already looking forward to a southwest road trip I’m planning for next February? On our trip, we’re going to spend a few days in Marfa to experience the magic everyone raves about.
