Beautiful San Marcos, set amidst rolling hills and sweeping fertile prairie, gives you the best of both worlds with a bustling city life and areas of peaceful countryside.
Through it all, the clear San Marcos River rolls tranquilly down from its springs, home to rare species like the blind salamander and the fountain darter fish, and on to join the mighty Guadelupe on its voyage to the ocean. More than 200 pure springs bubble up here, sending millions of gallons of clean water down the valley and providing a wonderful resource for water sports like kayaking, inner tubing, fishing and swimming.
Life is good here in the seat of Hays County and right on the Interstate 35 corridor, giving easy access to Austin and San Antonio. Do not make the mistake of thinking its scenic setting means it is a dull town with nothing to see or do.
The city square was recently given a multi-million dollar facelift and boosts shops, nightclubs, restaurants, hotels and so much more that tourism is beginning to be important to the economy.
San Marcos does not lag between in education either. Home to Texas State University, it also holds the Aquarena Center, an educational facility dedicated to research and preservation of natural resources.
