West Texas

A travel blog entry by andreatravels


Marfa, TX is a place I've been hearing about for years--for its artsy vibe, its mysterious lights, and its place in movie history. On my last visit to the Big Bend country in 2005, I stopped in Alpine and Ft. Davis but missed Marfa and this time I finally made it.

First stop as you approach Marfa is the viewing area for the …

I drove down from El Paso, and instead of taking I-10 east across vast West Texas, I took a more southern route, through Marfa, a little town that I had heard of, but wasn't sure what to expect from. Not too far outside of town, on the most deserted stretch of road one can imagine, I got a flat tire. Actually, the tire stayed pressurized, but the …

Marfa to Austin

A travel blog entry by jerrybreeze


We stayed overnight at the Paisano Hotel in Marfa, built in the 30s as a railroad hotel. The next morning we drove back to Austin via Alpine and Junction, with a lunch stop in Junction for some very tasty barbeque. The last few days in Austin, I had dinner with Steve and Kent and visited the UT campus to take a few pictures. I still think that it's …

Well we were going to stop here

A quick entry here - came out of Big Bend area on 118 thinking we will take it easy and stop at Marfa - famous for the Marfa Llights. But despite bumping into a little VW Beetle rally and having lunch at an apparently famous lunch wagon, Marfa was very very quiet, we'd done 3 days in Texas and decided "Lets get outta Dodge" and head to New Mexico and Arizona - Yeehah - ride on.......

Note, if you're into Art and quiet towns Marfa did look quite a nice place to stop ...

    For movie buffs...this is the place where Liz Taylor, Rock Hudson, James Dean and other stars stayed while filming the movie "Giant" back in the 50s. The hotel is beautiful, and the shops and galleries feature Giant memorabilia. Marfa is a little out of the way, but well worth a detour. Art Galleries, Restaurants, and one of the nicest small-town Texas courthouses. Don't expect wi-fi or even a telephone in your room...a nostalgic experience!

    Cute little place. Bathroom was very tight. TV was small & had a line on the screen. Hotel overall was nice & quaint!
