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 and COVID has made it even more like a ghost town on those days.
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:

PLEASE DO NOT RELY ON THIS LIST FOR DAYS AND HOURS OF OPERATION FOR ANYTHING BELOW. SINCE COVID, THINGS HAVE SHIFTED DRASTICALLY. PLEASE REACH OUT TO EACH BUSINESS BEFORE HITTING TOWN.

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!

Cochineal is great and we love Alex and James. Right now open Friday and Saturdays with a prix fixe menu.

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, we think, weekends.

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. 1411 W. San Antonio. West side, y'all. They typically go live with their menu on Wednesdays and it's pre-order and pick up.

The Water Stop. Open daily 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Rotisserie chicken and biscuits. Consistently open and consistently good.

Aster is a lovely addition to town. It's near the courthouse and we love their baked treats. Wednesday - Sunday for breakfast, brunch and lunch.

Jett's Grill: eat the chicken-fried steak or burger. The margaritas are rockin'! Sit in the courtyard. Now selling breakfast burritos. Jett's is now serving dinner until 10 during the week and 11 on weekends.

The Pizza Foundation is open very limited days. Contact them.

For morning coffee or an ice cream or a load of laundry, check out FRAMA next to Tumbleweed Laundry.

Go to Do Your Thing for a wonderful coffee. Open daily. Avocado toast. Coffee Toast Magic.

Hit the Sentinel for newspapers, coffee, cocktails and tacos.

Al Campo is at 200 S. Russell. Grab a bottle of rosé and sit outside. Check for special events -- they are good at hosting special stuff in town.

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.

Cactus Liquors has an amazing selection of tequilas, sotols and mezcals. It's on south Highland -- kinda easy to miss but look for the hot pink taped windows. THE BEST LIQUOR STORE ON THE PLANET.

Celebration Liquor is on the west side of town on HWY 90/San Antonio. Their selections are definitely improving and good.

For a beautiful and interesting selection of organic wines, go to Marfa Wine Co.

Lost Horse Saloon for a fun time and a beer and lotsa local flavor.

Check out Buns and Roses on the west side of town for breakfast and if for no other reason that that name. Great donuts.

Saturday mornings (no winter):  Marfa Saturday Market, 9:30 a.m. Located behind the Marfa Visitor's Center.

Para Llevar is across from big Stripes and Seth knows a thing or two about good food. Siempre is his new addition at the corner of San Antonio and Russell.
