The Secluded Glampground In Texas That Will Take You A Million Miles Away From It All
Even though we Texans are pretty good at roughing it, sometimes it’s nice to experience something in-between a five-star hotel and a measly little tent with a compost toilet and no running water – something that allows us to fully enjoy our surroundings without having to think as much about basic survival needs. El Cosmico in the remote West Texas desert town of Marfa is that kind of place exactly. With several different lodging options to suit your individual needs, you’ll feel completely at home despite being in the middle of nowhere at 4800 ft. elevation beneath the Milky Way band.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
