The tiny town of Marfa sits in West Texas, close to Davis Mountains State Park and Big Bend National Park. With a population of just 2,000, Marfa definitely has a remote, small-town feel to it. It's over 6 hours east to the state capital, Austin. Even El Paso is almost 4 hours to the west! Make sure you're stocked up on everything you need before making the drive out here. If you've got a taste for the unexplained, you won't want to miss the chance to see the infamous Marfa Mystery Lights. Strange luminous orbs seem to dance around at dusk in the air close to Highway 90. Researchers believe the lights might be an optical illusion caused by heat haze or car headlights. Less scientifically minded viewers think there might be a paranormal explanation. No one has proved anything either way, though, so go see for yourself! Traveling via RV? Try Tumble In RV Park, which sits a quarter-mile east of Marfa proper. Tumble In is fairly small, with just 14 sites. The site does offer full hookups, strong Wi-Fi access, and tent camping options.
