From the whimsy of Liz Lambert, Austin’s favorite lesbian, comes a richly textured getaway experience in tiny Marfa, Texas, a powerhouse art beacon next to nowhere. Choose from five refinished vintage Spartan trailers (the Rolls-Royce of Airstreams), yurts with bamboo floors, a 22-foot-diameter tepee, or outdoor tent camping on the hotel’s sprawling 18 acres. Just imagine how brightly the romantic spark will burn when you’re cozied up around a fire pit while stars awe in the wide-open night. For daytime destinations, walk to the gallery space at Ballroom Marfa, downtown-hub Marfa Book Company, or the town’s main event, Donald Judd’s Chinati Foundation.
