What locals are saying

More than 10,000 years ago, San Marcos was a river town. More than 10,000 years later, San Marcos is still a river town, with a present day population spoiled by the pleasures of spring-fed waters and an old Austin atmosphere. Necessities include a guitar, a case of beer, and a tube for floating the San Marcos River.

The only public transportation system is CARTS (taken from the local supermarket – bring a friend to push - kidding), a rural bus that runs throughout central Texas and is less than convenient for most residents
