Tri-County Triangle

← Back to Day Trips

Alpine, Fort Davis and Marfa are each the county seats for Brewster, Jeff Davis and Presidio Counties respectively. Besides their beautiful courthouses each town offers local attractions and plenty of charm. The drives alone from one town to the next offer scenic views for miles and are perfect day trips to take in one or two sites in each town and get back to Alpine for an evening of fun!
