Since the Coronavirus has put a damper on my travels plans I decided to take a road trip out west. The great thing about living in Texas is you never run out of things to see and do. The state is just loaded with roadside attractions, historical sights, and hidden gems just waiting to be discovered. The first stop was at Target in Marathon, Texas. I mean who doesn’t love Target? The only thing is that this Target offers nothing on your shopping list! This roadside attraction is a very popular stop for most road trippers that travel through these parts. Oh yeah, no mask is required at this location! I continued the shopping spree by stopping by the Prada store in Valentine, Texas. Unlike the Target, this roadside attraction actually has merchandise although it’s not for sale. It’s not an actual store at all, in fact, it’s a permanent art installation built by a couple of Scandinavian artists called Elmgreen and Dragset. This roadside attraction has been visited by celebrities like Beyonce and it’s also been featured on an episode of The Simpsons.
After a long day of traveling it was time to check in to our sleeping accommodations. In the desert of West Texas we arrived at Basecamp Terlingua. Basecamp Terlingua offers several glamping like options but the most unique one is the bubble. Has there ever been so much stuff going on that you just wanted to jump inside of a snow globe and live there for a while? Well now you can! Kinda~
Welcome to Basecamp Terlingua! This transparent bubble has all the amenities of a hotel room with some of the best views in the west. These bubbles usually stay booked months in advance but they sometimes have last minute cancellations. If you can go I’d definitely recommend venturing out west.
