Why We Love San Marcos, Texas
Small Town Feel, Big City Attractions
A city of over 60,000, San Marcos is home to a wide variety of local attractions such as the San Marcos River and the many parks along it, a historical downtown area, and the growing Texas State University.
Whether you’ve just moved to San Marcos to attend the university or are a longtime resident who remembers Ralph the Swimming Pig at Aquarena Springs, here are some of the things we love about San Marcos, Texas:
In 2014, San Marcos was named the fastest growing city in the United States.
The San Marcos River is home to several endangered plants and animals, making it one of the most studied river ecosystems in the state.
Local Arts & Culture
In association with the Mermaid Society of Texas, the Arts Commission of San Marcos had 10 mermaid sculptures created and commissioned local artists to paint them. The sculptures were then places around San Marcos for residents to enjoy. You can visit Mermaid Society SMTX to find out where the mermaids are located around the city.
What many San Marcos residents remember as Aquarena Springs (the environmental center, not the street!) is now The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment. While Ralph the Swimming Pig has long since retired, The Meadows Center now offers multiple ways for visitors to enjoy Spring Lake, including snorkel education programs, paddling tours, and the famous glass-bottom boat rides.
Historic Music Scene
San Marcos is home to the famous Cheatham Street Warehouse, where many widely known names in Texas music have played. Stevie Ray Vaughan, Randy Rogers, and even George Strait all once stood on the stage at Cheatham Street Warehouse. This music venue is still in operation today, giving up and coming Texas artists a chance to enthrall Central Texas.
And Much More
These are just a few of our favorite reasons to be located in San Marcos, TX, and there are countless others!
