Day 2: Marfa
Many of the town’s permanent residents start their mornings at Do Your Thing coffee shop, with espresso, avocado toast, and people watching. You should do the same, and once you’ve had your caffeine fix, head out on foot to absorb the pastel shades and contours of the town’s structures, and visit funky shops like Cobra Rock and Mano Mercantile. When the sun gets low in the west, head to the Capri for chef Barnette’s pre-Columbian cuisine, with dishes like watermelon radish salad and turkey mole. After dinner, try for a viewing of the Marfa lights: mysterious floating balls of luminous color visible east of town that may be reflections of distant headlights but can seem otherworldly in the desert. Or head to the mangy but irresistible Lost Horse Saloon for one last Ranch Water: tequila, lime, and mineral water.
