Review of San Marcos, Texas

Fun college town
Star Rating - 3/1/2008
I spent several summers and a couple winters in San Marcos during my formidable years and really have to tell those interested about what a nice town it is. The best things are the green fauna in a good wet year and the lovely San Marcos River! The college makes it fun with lots of educational opportunities and cultural diversities. The Tex-Mex food, vicinity to Austin's music scene and San Antonio's Hispanic history make it a wonderful place to experience. With the growth I have seen over the years, traffic can be a bit congestive; but not so much as to ruin my romanticism. The smaller towns surrounding San Marcos make it easy to live a country life (my style) while having all the big town amenities. Nothing compares to the Texas Hill Country! And remember to "Drive Friendly!"
