Whether you're planning that family summer vacation, your next romantic getaway, a girls' shopping marathon or a professional conference with all the bells and whistles, San Marcos always has something to celebrate. With so many things to attract you to San Marcos, it can be hard to choose what to do first. 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. Grab a tube and go for a float. Rent a kayak or stand-up paddle and navigate its length. Bring your snorkel and discover its depth. Or just bring a picnic and soak up some sun. No matter where you go, there it is - art, culture and history are entwined in the spirit of San Marcos. Whether sipping a cup of joe at a coffee shop or catching a bite to eat in town, you'll not only be surrounded by local art, but can take it home too. Once the sun sets, things really heat up in San Marcos. Live music every night. Legendary career-launching stages. Small hole-in-the-wall bars. Big two-story concert theater. Whatever you're in the mood for, there's a venue in San Marcos that will hit just the right note.
