You’ve probably heard of it, but have you seen it? Where wide-open spaces evoke meditation and quiet roads invite morning walks. It’s live music, art galleries, mystery lights, and small bites. It’s where celebrities go to escape, and ranchers begin the day at dawn. It’s where Anthony Bourdain dined, Rick Bass wrote, and Lance goes to ride. It’s where land as far as the eye can see meets more stars than you can count, and where modern and historic reside side-by-side. It’s Marfa.
With a community of fewer than 2,000 residents, Marfa is a walkable Texas destination where the pace slows down, and you find yourself appreciating the simple things in life. Located in the high desert planes of the Trans-Pecos region, Marfa is far from the distractions of city life. With deep ties to border heritage and a layered history, Marfa is a place where the past is present. 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.
