Things to do near San Marcos, Texas

Did you know there’s an AWESOME Adventure Farm called Sweet Eats Fruit Farm located one hour and 15 minutes directly northeast of San Marcos?

The San Marcos, Texas we know today was founded in 1851 and has thrived for more than 161 years. In 2001, the community celebrated its 150th Birthday-with an entire year of special events, commemorations and special publications. But this area was inhabited to the Ancient Native Americans-the Clovis Indians that date back more than 12,000 years! The original inhabitants hunted and fished along the banks of the river and took care of the beautiful land we get to enjoy today. San Marcos is a flourishing city with an estimated population of almost 39,000 residents that call it home. With that many people in an area all looking for something to do, what better than to escape the city and head toward farm animals and fun!!
