Three day visit to Alpine, TX
Posted 13 August 2017 - 06:25 PM
We stayed at Holland Hotel just across the street. Tell them you arrived by Amtrak and you will get a warm reception. Town is very walkable and has several unique shops (sorry no Walmart). While there is no nation car rental chain there, they do have independent car rental service. County courthouse is original and worth a quicksee. You are in the heart of wide open Texas, but within reasonable driving distances are Big Bend National park, Marfa TX with its misterious lights and Guadalupe Mtns.
For train watchers. This is UPS main line Los Angeles to Houston and is crew chain town so there is considerable freight traffic.
