Marfa Book Store Co.
A bookstore isn’t typically a major tourist attraction, but most bookstores aren’t like Marfa Book Store Co. (105 S. Highland Ave., 432/729-3906, www.marfabookco.com, 10 a.m.–7 p.m. daily).
The store is a magnet for the town’s creative community, with an incredible selection of regional and intellectual-themed books, an art gallery, and numerous readings and events. Its focus is on art and architecture, and you can get lost browsing through the sections devoted to photography, folk art, interior design, and other creative pursuits.
The bookstore also showcases contemporary and regional writers and poets, serves as one of the few public Wi-Fi spaces in town, and sells gift items and occasional coffees.
