Founded on the bay of the San Marco River, it is one of the oldest cities that has been continuously inhabited. Due to its location along the river and its nearby creeks, there are a variety of parks and nature preserves with hiking trails to visit. Most popular being Sewell Park, this is a great location to come and hang out with activities such as swimming and tubing, canoeing, and fishing. Home to Texas State University, there is a vast amount of diversity and culture in this area, as well as the tradition for recent graduates to jump in the San Marcos River after the graduation ceremony. The downtown area is the hub for top entertainment, including bars, restaurants, boutiques, and music. In addition, the area has many spots for graffiti murals and mermaid statues, in honor of the regional artists, culture, and natural beauty of the city. Nicknamed “San Marvelous,” this is a great place to come watch the Texas State Bobcats compete in a football game, or visit Wonder World Park.
