Veering Off the Beaten Path

Marfa, an artist community located in the high desert of West Texas, was a highlight of my recent cross country road trip. With a population of 1,981, Marfa is most well known for the incredible outdoor installations of artist Donald Judd, the Marfa Lights, movies such as No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood, and the Prada Marfa art installation.

If you find yourself near Marfa (coordinates 30.3119 N, 104.0247 W), we recommend visiting Freda, an exceptionally well curated lifestyle boutique, eating (and getting flowers if you want them) at Buns and Roses, grabbing a drink at Padre's, picking up a crystal from Moonlight Gemstones, and spending the night in a trailer or teepee at El Cosmico.
