The easiest way to get to Alpine is to drive, but you can also take a train, bus, or airplane. Greyhound bus has a stop in Alpine and so does Amtrak passenger train (http://www.cwrr.com/Amtrak/w_eagle.html).
The airport has facilities to accommodate most privately owned small aircraft; however, there is currently no commercial airlines service to the airport. The closest commercial airports are located in Midland-Odessa and El Paso.

People out here tend to wave alot. They are friendly. Don't wave at the Border Patrol when you pass them on the highway. They could interpret it as you trying to signal them and that will waste your time. Wave at everyone else. The guy on the side of the road near the Town N Country in Alpine? His name is Ray. That's his thing, to stand there staring at cars. Wave at him. And don't expect for anything to go fast at the TNC. It won't and you will end up frustrated.

Alpine is another small town, way off the tourist path and in middle of hills of south west Texas. It is couple of hours from Odessa TX and an hour from Mexican boarder.
Close by there is mysterious Marfa lights usually seen near U.S. Route 67 on Mitchell Flat east of Marfa. Local believe that they are UFO’s and there is an observation building. I was there for couple of hours and didn’t see any light, but it was fun.
It is a great place if you want to be really away from everything and rest for a week, I wouldn’t do it for two weeks though!
