Marfa, Texas. The biggest little art plantation in Texas. It’s an odd place, where old Mexico combines with a unique Texan flavor. No place quite captures the spirit like El Cosmico, the typically weird Texas motel community comprised of motor homes, tents and tepees. Start your journey at the lovely website, elcosmico.com Here, you can enjoy solitude, art and a sky that seems to stretch forever. In this mostly wireless environment, you can enjoy over 600 books about art, architecture, philosophy and history. Well behaved dogs are welcome and they have lip balm, so you won’t be totally roughing it. If solitude appeals to you, el Cosmico awaits.
