Travel Tuesday: Marfa

Marfa was never on my radar growing up in Austin – I hadn’t even heard of the place. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I started hearing buzz around the food, art, character, and el cosmico that inspired my recent trip.

West Texas is beautiful and charming and peaceful. If you live in the area {or if you’re just visiting} I think it’s absolutely worth a trek. My only regrets is not adding Big Bend National Park to our trip; I suppose now we have a good excuse to go back.

Some Recs:

STAY @ el cosmico or the love house  
EAT @ cochineal + food shark + pizza foundation {the food in this town is quite amazing}
EXPLORE the art galleries to your interest. There are tons, it all just depends on what you’re in to {prada marfa is an obvious must, but keep in mind it is actually 30 minutes outside the town}.
STAR PARTY – make time for this. It is a very special experience, and if you get the right weather you’ll see more stars than you ever have in your life.
