The city is filled with beautiful green space to wind down, relax and enjoy before your next planned adventure.
For an active outing, consider a day filled with shopping. And more shopping. San Marcos is home to The San Marcos Outlet Center, the largest outlet center in the United States that features 240 designer and name brands with discounts of up to 65% off retail prices. For more eclectic shopping, check out the Downtown Historic District for trendy, local boutiques, unique shops and local restaurants / bars. If you’re in the mood for fresh air, take a glass-bottom boat ride at The Meadows Center, tube down the river, or relax by the water front and bird watch. Then, catch some live music at Cheatham Street Warehouse and peruse classic, American-made automobiles dating back to 1929 at Dick’s Classic Garage.
