San Marcos Like a Local
One of the coolest cultural aspects of San Marcos, in our opinion, is the thriving and diverse art scene. Visiting one of the many art markets in San Marcos is a great way to experience the colors, textures and faces of the unique community. From coffee shops to galleries, fire spinners to glassblowing, you never know what you’ll stumble upon in San Marcos.
Rainy days can throw a wrench in your SMTXperience if you planned a weekend of river floats and outdoor adventures. However, some of our favorite things to do in San Marcos take place indoors (or underground) and away from any gloomy weather.
Gaze at the night sky as you paddle along a peaceful river, trek on remote trails through picturesque Texas Hill Country terrain, and indulge in one adrenaline rush after another. These kinds of outdoor adventures are yours to be had in San Marcos, a charming small town settled between San Antonio and Austin.
