4 Rainy Day SMTXperiences

June 19, 2018

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.  


Wimberley Glassworks

Known worldwide for their beautiful hand-blown glass art and lighting pieces, Wimberley Glassworks sure brightens up a gloomy day. Watch the artisans create pieces of glass art using centuries-old techniques in the workshop and then peruse the amazing pieces for sale in the gallery.


Wonder World Park

Go deep underground to escape the rain at Wonder World Park. The first commercial show cave in Texas, the guided tour shows off the beautify of this earthquake-formed cave. After you explore the cave, stop by the Anti-Gravity House where everything is backwards and even the water flows uphill!


The Wittliff Collection

From the Lonesome Dove exhibit to the Texas Music Collection, The Wittliff Collections is a haven for fans of Southwest literary, photographic and musical arts.

Dick’s Classic Garage Car Museum

Dick’s Classic Garage currently showcases more than 80 vehicles, as well as memorabilia, from the 1900s through the 1950s. Walk through the “golden years” of American automotive manufacturing and appreciate extravagant, rare and well-loved automobiles. This is a great stop for any car lover!
