Lawn Care Made Easy in San Marcos, TX

No surprise the U.S. Census Bureau lists San Marcos as the fastest growing city in the United States. Situated between Austin and San Antonio, it's tough to find a better place to live and raise a family. It's an excellent area for shopping and recreation. Maybe that's why many Texans choose to attend Texas State University.

San Marcos is more than a college town. People come here to enjoy the great outdoors. You can hike down the San Marcos River Walk, look for deer at the Purgatory Creek Natural Area, take the dog for a run at the Ringtail Ridge Natural Area, or hike Madrone Trail and explore Canyon Lake.

When it heats up, head for the water. USA Today ranks the San Marco River as one of the best tubing spots in the country. Maybe that's because of the crystal clear water or the constant 72-degree temperature. The Meadow Center for Water & The Environment offers daily glass bottom boat tours. Explore the springs and Wetlands! You can also rent a canoe, paddleboard or Kayak down the San Marcos or Blanco Rivers. You can get a close-up view of the underwater world by snorkeling at the Olympic Outdoor Center off of I-35. Sewell Park offers great fishing and swimming.

If shopping is more your thing, check out the outlet stores. The TV talk show The View named the San Marcos Outlets as the third-best place to shop in the world. The outlet includes more than 140 luxury and brand name outlet stores including Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Vera Bradley outlet, and Victoria's Secret.
