With a community of around 1,800 residents, Marfa is a walkable Texas destination where the pace slows down and you find yourself appreciating the simple things in life. Located in the high desert planes of the Trans-Pecos region, Marfa is far from the distractions of city life. With deep ties to border heritage and a layered history, Marfa is a place where the past is present. They say it can be tough to get to, but when you arrive in this peaceful desert surrounded by the Texas mountains, sprawling ranches, and stunning sunsets, you’ll know, it’s worth it.
- When gazing upon the majestic scenery, clear skies and lonesome roads that surround Marfa, it's no wonder to see why Joel and Ethan Coen chose this backdrop for their opus' opening montage narrated by Texas-native, Tommy Lee Jones.
- From the wide-open spaces to the definitively West Texas homes and everything in-between, Plains' 2022 music video 'Abilene' captures the unique beauty of Marfa like few others have.
