    Historic hotel in Marfa

    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!

    Our last stop in Texas is Marfa, an arty town in the middle of nowhere. We had hoped to stay at El Cosmico (a campground with the coolest trailers you ever did see) but they're fully booked. In January. We end up at The Hotel Paisano, where the cast and crew of the movie Giant (including James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson) set up shop back in 1955.

We got out to unhook and lo and of sway bars was missing!!!! Could the day get any better...yes it can, we were safe and had a great place to stay for 3 nights. We have been having trouble with that one side where that bar goes and if it is not in just right, it will ...

    ... about 3:30pm. Bought a state park pass. Went for a wonderful swim in the springs – we looked for the springs but did not find them (guess we did not look hard enough). Not too many people there, although more came after we did. The springs were so clear that things looked closer than they actually were. At one point we were swimming and we thought the bottom was a couple feet below us – turned out we could not even reach the ...

    We got to Davis Mountains State Park and walked some miles around there before the sun went down. Some hours driving back where still ahead. I was lucky my colleague was fully awake and liked to drive, because I was tired. Thanks buddy!
