Car: Recommended

Marfa is home to a rich artistic and creative community full of emerging and established artists and writers. Vibrant social scene with great restaurants, galleries, activities and nature. Close to world famous McDonald Observatory, The Davis Mountains and Chinati (Donald Judd's iconic collection of sculptures). Incredible access to world class art through Ballroom Marfa and many other galleries showing art from around the world. Incredible and delicious food from sustainable sources and gardens in the area. Also close to Big Bend National Park, Fort Davis, Marathon and the Chinati Hot Springs. The vast views, clear blue skies and inviting High Desert climate make Marfa a relaxing, spiritual and energizing destination.
