One of the best parts of Marfa is its remote location, but that does mean extra travel time. You’ll need to fly into either Midland or El Paso, get a rental car, and then drive for about 2.5 hours. I made a fun playlist which helped us stay awake for the drive. Also beware of mirages - the whole drive it looked like the road was wet. It is a trek, but you’ll probably only come here once in a lifetime - It is the ideal destination for those looking to unplug!
Once you’ve made it to Marfa, there are many different options for where to stay - vacation rentals, boutique hotels, and camping for those who love an adventure. We decided to start our stay at Thunderbird, a locally run hotel since 1959 that was renovated into a contemporary boutique motel with a pool. The rooms are nicely designed and fairly contactless - which was a great fit for our timing of travel during the pandemic.
