San Marcos Like a Local
San Marcos has been a popular spot for visitors since, well, roughly 12,000 years ago… The Clovis Indians, the oldest known inhabitants of the western hemisphere, left some artifacts behind from their stay and ever since then people have been coming to enjoy the wonders of San Marcos.
Just a few months ago crowded ballrooms, handshakes, high traffic touchpoints and buffet lunchbreaks were standard for conferences, meetings and events.

Walking around San Marcos is a sensory experience. The smells, colors, textures and tastes of San Marcos tell a story of the city, its citizens and the unique culture that developed in the oasis town between San Antonio and Austin. One of the most important San Marcos cultural staples is the blossoming art scene.
