Marfa Lights Viewing Area

A monument to superstition, credulity, willful ignorance and tourism.

Okay, so it's mostly restrooms, and a patio with telescopes. If you need to pee between Marfa and Alpine, this is the place.

But it's not all hokum and bladder relief. There are educational plaques, too.

And you can peek at the peaks over in Big Bend National Park. (Yes, Texas has mountains.)
