Enjoy a city of many wonders when you reside in San Marcos, known for its recreation, gorgeous landscaping and the San Marcos and Blanco Rivers, which both flow throughout the city. Better yet, San Marcos holds quite a few annual cultural events, too. For over twenty years, the San Marcos Performing Arts Commission and the San Marcos Parks and Recreation Department have hosted the Summer in the Park concert series from June to August. Additionally, when Christmas rolls around, residents enjoy making a stop at Santa’s Ranch, where attendees can take part in a drive-through holiday light display. Love the big city? San Marcos is located within the Austin-Round Rock metropolitan area and grants residents an easy commute to ATX.
