Nearly two weeks ago Travis took me to Marfa, Texas for an early birthday getaway. I’ve been wanting to go for years now, so Travis planned a trip there for me as a surprise! We set off on our nearly 8 hour drive and arrived on Friday afternoon to the most wonderful weather and amazing west Texas scenery. Here are just a few images from our trip.
Although the trek is long to get there, I cannot recommend a trip to Marfa enough. There’s an overwhelming sense of calm in Marfa. Not to mention, the art, food, and people are amazing. Hop on a bike and just peddle around town – it was our favorite way to stumble upon fantastic little hidden gems around town.
Where we ate: Maiya’s, Cochineal, Squeeze Marfa, Food Shark, Museum of Electronic Wonders and Late Night Grilled Cheese Parlour, Pizza Foundation, Jett’s at The Hotel Paisano
Where we drank: Padre’s, Planet Marfa, and bought some great wine at The Get Go
What we visited: The Chinati Foundation, Judd Foundation, Ayn Foundation, Prada Marfa, Ballroom Marfa, The Marfa Lights
Where we stayed: The Thunderbird Hotel
