Blanco Vista Regional Attractions

September 30, 2018 7:17 pm

The Blanco Vista community of new homes in San Marcos TX is perfectly located to take advantage of all the attractions the area has to offer.

Blanco Vista is master planned community situated next to the scenic Blanco River. The community covers 575 acres and includes a Community Center with a Junior Olympic swimming pool, kids’ splash pool and two playscapes. Residents also have access to a regional soccer complex, stocked fishing pond, and more. The adjacent Five Mile Dam Park offers opportunities to enjoy the water, have a picnic or take a hike.

Students living in Blanco Vista will attend Hays ISD. The district is known for high academic standards, energy-efficient buildings and outstanding extracurricular activities. As they progress, Blanco Vista’s students will attend Blanco Vista Elementary School, Wallace Middle School and Lehman High School.

The city of San Marcos is a growing Hill Country college town south of Austin. It has the hipness of Austin at a more affordable price. The area has a robust job market as well as a beautiful climate with mostly sunny weather. It’s also convenient to San Antonio.

Thanks to its low cost of living, San Marcos attracts plenty of young professionals, musicians, and artists. Employers include major corporations, Texas State University and numerous small businesses. Taxes for entrepreneurs and small businesses are reasonable, and the city has an ordinance that pays utility bills for recently discharged veterans. The city’s growth is carefully planned so it doesn’t suffer the traffic congestion and housing shortages that plague Austin.

Nightlife in San Marcos centers around a vibrant live entertainment area. The Square, the area surrounding the historic district, is filled with music venues and bars with high-quality performers. The town’s bohemian vibe extends to the art scene as well. Monthly art and wine walks take participants to the many colorful murals adorning city buildings.

Outdoor enthusiasts will want to head to the San Marcos River for tubing in the summer. Its headwaters are on the campus of Texas State University, where the annual Float Fest in July draws 20,000 people for tubing, camping, partying and listening to live music.

All these attractions and more are available within a surrounding landscape of rolling hills, wildflowers, expansive ranches and blue skies.
