A few years ago of one of my best friends got married in the small town of Marathon, Texas. While this town is basically in the middle of nowhere, it had a fun and unexpected artistic vibe that it’s big brother an hour down the road, Marfa, has become well known for. The day of the rehearsal dinner I had some time to kill, so I rented a bike and spent the afternoon exploring what Marathon had to offer.
Even in a small town in rural Texas, you are never far from a cute coffee shop, which this New Yorker was thankful for.
Backyard turned massive hobbiest railroad yard.
The host of the wedding weekend, the Gage Hotel. For a small town, this hotel is beautiful and has done a great job of preserving their history. I would definitely recommend for anyone traveling in the area!
Plenty of quirky art set against the mountain landscape.
Love a good desert landscape
