First and foremost: do not speed anywhere near the Big Bend area/Marfa. It can be Highway Patrol central out here.
A drive in ANY direction is absolutely gorgeous and epic.

Also remember drive times out here: To the Big Bend it's a good 2 hour drive. The Gage/Marathon to Marfa is 1 hour.

Mondays and Tuesdays are NOT, (we repeat, NOT) the best days to visit. Most of the town is shut down.
On that note, Marfa is subtle. Generally, everything is closed every day of the week. You must give in, relax and let things come to you because there's a whole lot of stuff just bubbling under the surface.

Bring hats, plenty of sunscreen and a jacket because we are nearly a mile high. And lotion galore!

Our very own homegrown public radio is Marfa Public Radio at 93.5. Tune in!

We love 98.9. Music all the time and fun.

Pick up a Big Bend Sentinel.

Need a ride or want to find out what is going on in town:  Marfalist.org is the go to site.

Plan to climb to the top of the courthouse and see the edge of town in all directions. It's a real treat.

Food and booze:
We have the sweet Get Go Grocery and it's wonderful. We are happy to report that Porter's Grocery is rockin' it too. Thank you!

Stellina! We love having this place. Tues-Sat, 5 - 9ish. Downtown between railroad and Hotel Paisano.

Cochineal is delish and a great choice on Sunday and Monday when other restaurants are closed. Plan accordingly. Thursday to Monday for dinner.

Definitely hit the Food Shark for lunch. It's  located west San Antonio at FM2810 across from the rock shop. It's a Marfa jewel and loved by all. Open Wednesday - Saturday.
And behind the Food Shark is the Casita Bar aka Christmas Bar. We love it. Tell Chris we sent ya!

For a burrito bigger than yo' face: go to the Burrito Lady. She's south of the blinking light 3-4 blocks and the sweetest person on the planet.

Convenience West. Marfa finally has a b-b-q joint, and oh boy, it's great. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 5 p.m. until it's all gone. 1411 W. San Antonio. West side, y'all.

Bet you've always wanted a subterranean teepee, a cool dance floor under the stars and great nachos all in one place. Head to Planet Marfa. It's open seasonally (warm months) and loved by all. It's a great place to rent for a big, private party. Friday through Sunday.
