Marfa, TX

Part Texas.  Part Mars.  All Marfa.  This West Texas town is a unique blossom of art and creativity in the desert.  To see what I mean, head to the Chinati Foundation to see some of the most famous and interesting installation art pieces in the world.

When hungry, head to Food Shark for Mediterranean food in the Texas desert, Padre’s for cajun food, or Squeeze Marfa for swiss food.  I told you this place was interesting.

Your next stop should be to the top of the Presidio County Courthouse for a 360 degree view of town.  And if you want to get even higher, head to the airport to take a glider ride with trainer Burt Compton of Glide Marfa.

And when the sun sets, the fun really begins, so head to see the mystery Marfa Lights.
