Most small towns lack some sort of convenience; whether it's healthy food alternatives, a dose of culture or social interaction, there's typically a tradeoff when deciding to live off the grid. At least, that's what we thought before our visit to Marfa, TX.
To say the least, we were pleasantly surprised with the amount of awesomeness in a town with a population of 1,899. Our new favorite Swiss breakfast spot, Squeeze, had delicious gluten-free sandwiches--not to mention a decadent assortment of locally-made chocolates. The Hotel Paisano, a well-preserved holdover from the 1930's, featured an excellent spot to dine outside and enjoy the cool night air.
And, if you're in the mood for libations, Padres was a nice, low-key spot to sit outside, sip a few local brews and chow down on a yummy basket of sweet potato fries. Can't beat cold beer and warm fries!
Another plus, was the abundance of scenery. Literally, every spot is a photo op. The retro style architecture and big blue sky make a dynamite one-two punch for photographs.
After our short, 2-day stay had ended, were super sad to leave. In a mere 48 hours, we had managed to fall in love with the smallest of small towns. And even though our Southwest road trip had just begun, we felt as if our future hometown had already been discovered.

We knew our line of protest tees needed an extra level of political firepower. That's why we teamed up with one of our favorite shops, Row House 14.
