If you are planning to make a road trip out of your journey to Marfa, godspeed and mazel tov! It’s a fun trip. Graham and Marika made the trip all the way from Cleveland to Marfa on their first trip out, and it was a great one. A few helpful distances if you’re driving: Austin to Marfa: 6 hours Dallas to Marfa: 7 hours Cleveland to Marfa: 24 hours San Francisco to Marfa: 20 hours Los Angeles to Marfa: 14 hours New Orleans to Marfa: 13 hours Denver to Marfa: 12 hours
There are two airports about equidistant from Marfa. They are El Paso Airport (ELP) and Odessa/Midland Airport (MAF). You can fly into either and then rent a car to drive to Marfa. It’s about a 3-hour drive from either airport to Marfa, although Graham and I have usually done it in a bit less. Most standard car rental companies have offices in both airports.
