Marfa, a small city of West Texas, is known for its legendary Marfa Lights (a nightly display of bright lights, a phenomenon that is unexplained though documented since 1883). The tiny town also hosts a variety of museums, wineries and art galleries. Prada Marfa, a one-room replica of a Prada store, is a permanent art installation roughly 26 miles from the city. Marfa is also near to Texas’ Big Bend National Park
, home to more than 1,000 plant species, including a staggering 60 species of cactus. Big Bend is popular for its hiking trails, birdwatching and backpacking tours.
For something a little bit different, slap bang in the middle of Marfa, try staying in this open-plan living space styled like an artist’s workspace
. With a pool table, widescreen projector, PS4, record player and room for getting creative, just make sure you don’t spend all your time inside.
