We made the trek to Marfa, Texas a few weeks back and it ended up being the perfect little getaway. Two days in this little Texas town was just the right amount of time to see << and eat >> everything. Marfa has a personality all its own! Here is the scoop on what we were able to squeeze into the short time we spent in this little art mecca >>
<< WHERE WE STAYED >>
Although we nearly froze at night, << El Cosmico >> was so worth it. We were supposed to shack up in the Little Pinky trailer, but ended up staying one night in the Imperial Mansion and the other in the Kozy Coach. The little heaters in the trailers are definitely necessary in the winter, but I can't wait to come back and glamp in one of those teepees! El Cosmico's lobby and gift shop are just gorgeous, and you may meet a little pup named Lincoln if you hang out there long enough.
<< WHERE WE ATE >>
We were really impressed with the food scene in Marfa, especially given it is a one-light town. Our absolute favorite was the quiche at << Do Your Thing Coffee >> we woke up early on our way out just to get another taste of it. The Mediterranean eats at << Food Shark >> were pretty tasty, and the food truck set up was adorable. << The Get Go >> is a great place to pick up a snack or two. We also enjoyed a gluten free pizza for lunch at the << Pizza Foundation >> and a fancy pants dinner at << Cochineal >>.
<< WHAT WE DID >>
If you love art and shopping like me, then Marfa is the place to be. The art installations are mind blowing, including the infamous Prada Marfa backed by the folks at << Ballroom Marfa >> and the work of Donald Judd and Dan Flavin at << The Chianti Foundation >>. There are a handful of unique curated shops. We were smitten with << Mirth >> for house wares, << Freda >> for woman's accessories, and << Wrong Marfa >> for random finds. My husband Mead took a ride with Burt at << Marfa Gliders >> after I bored him with all the art tours and shopping.
