San Marcos, Texas, is a consistently growing town, thanks to Texas State University, but this hasn’t stopped this community from maintaining its peaceful way of life. The serenity found while relaxing along the banks of the San Marcos River reminds its residents of a time when life was easy. Even with its growing population, San Marcos has a small-town appeal and is perfect for those looking for a home-town experience. Many of the town's annual events highlight its small-town charms and traditions. For example, Christmas along San Antonio Street is something you wouldn’t want to miss, with lights lining the beautiful older San Marcos homes, bringing joy to the residents' hearts. Also contributing to its appeal, the town has a square that was recently renovated and now encompasses a wide variety of shops and stores to be explored.
Additionally, the options for activities in San Marcos are endless and include biking or hiking in the rolling hills around the metro, shopping at the outlet malls, or tubing and boating down the San Marcos River. One of the most fascinating major attractions in the area is the Aquarena Center. Aquarena was bought by Texas State University and expanded to include an education center. The university kept some of the most popular features of Aquarena, such as the famous glass-bottom boats, but it ditched The Mermaids and Ralph the Swimming Pig. The transformation of Aquarena into an environmental education center helps give the public a clear understanding of the importance of the local wetlands. It also educates tourists and residents alike about the Edward Aquifer and allows them to see the local wildlife while keeping them safe.
This city offers an easy commute to San Antonio via I-35 and is only a thirty-minute drive to the state capitol, too. Known for its low cost of living, San Marcos is a great place to find a house with wonderful amenities. Affordable San Marcos homes can be found in a wide range of options, including Victorian homes and new construction in communities such as Blanco Vista, the first-ever master-planned community in this area.
