Top Three Offbeat Travel Destinations In Texas

Taking a summer road trip? Why not take the road less traveled and visit some of these offbeat travel destinations in Texas?

Marfa Lights – Marfa

Go out to the edge of town in Marfa (they actually have an observation deck), look towards the horizon, and you just might see mysterious flickers of light known officially as the Marfa Lights. What are they? People think that they can’t be electrical because cowboys reported seeing them. Others think they might be the reflection of headlights of cars, but their origin is obviously aliens, right?

Terlingua Ghost Town is an offbeat travel destination in texasTerlingua Ghost Town – Terlingua

What used to be a bustling little silver mining town is now an eerie shadow of its former glory. Go to Terlingua and in the lonely Texan desert you’ll find the remnants of the town, composed of small crumbling structures.

Enchanted Rock – Fredericksburg

Climb atop this beautiful and gargantuan pink granite rock at night and listen to it creak. Scientists say the sounds are result of the rock contracting in the cool night air, but the rest of us think that’s stupid—it’s obviously the lamentations of the ghost of the Tonkawa princess who, according to legend, threw herself off of the rock when she saw her tribe slaughtered.

Forget the Alamo. Aliens and ghosts—that’s what Texas is all about!

All-New Cadillac House In New York City Celebrates The Cadillac Aesthetic

Have you ever been sitting in a coffee shop and thought to yourself, “I wish I could peruse interesting and informative exhibits on various Cadillac models while I drink this double-shot cortada”? If so, you got your wish! You’ll just have to take a road trip to New York City to fulfill it. Could you think of any better excuse to hit the road?

Cadillac recently moved their headquarters from the Motor City to the City That Never Sleeps. The all-new Cadillac House will be a 12,000-square-foot space, which means it should have no trouble accommodating everything Cadillac hopes to hold there, namely, events, vehicle exhibits and most importantly, a coffee shop.

But when you visit, don’t expect some austere warehouse space. This is Cadillac, after all: the Cadillac House was designed by global design firm Gensler. Oh, and don’t expect just “car stuff”—Cadillac has asked Visionaire, an edgy art publication, to put up new interactive art installations quarterly.

According to Uwe Ellinghaus, chief marketing officer for Cadillac, the purpose of the Cadillac House in New York City is simple. The new experience center is “an exciting opportunity to bring to life the brand’s unique passion and perspective for beyond the automotive space.”
