Attractions

Air, Earth, Fire & Water - All the Elements for Adventure

With so many things to attract you to San Marcos, it can be hard to choose what to do first. Why not take to the skies? Skydive San Marcos will give you the thrill of a lifetime with a tandem skydive experience. Or you can always enjoy a hot air balloon or helicopter ride to see the sights.

More interested in what's happening beneath the surface? Marvel at underwater marine life and watch hundreds of springs bubble up to form the headwaters of the San Marcos River from a glass bottom boat at The Meadows Center formerly Aquarena Center. Want a more personal experience? Glass bottom kayak tours are also available on Spring Lake. Feel like going a little deeper? Wonder World Park is the nation's only true example of an earthquake formed cave that is open to the public.

Like to heat things up a bit? Wimberley Glassworks has daily demonstrations turning bits of silica and sand into amazing works of art glass with a little air and a lot of fire.
