San Marcos Attractions & Amenities

September 12, 2019 11:01 pm

Two communities of new homes in San Marcos TX were designed for maximum enjoyment of surrounding attractions and community amenities. TRACE and Blanco Vista are within easy reach of area attractions and both have resort-style amenities on site.

TRACE is located at Posey Road and I-35. Residents can take advantage of the community’s Presidio Amenity Center featuring a resort-style swimming pool, shaded picnic tables, sand volleyball court and other recreational options.

Blanco Vista is also convenient to I-35 and is situated next to the Blanco River and Five Mile Dam Park. The Blanco Vista Community Center has a Junior Olympic swimming pool, splash pad and two playscapes. Landscaped trails throughout the community and a stocked fishing pond provide even more opportunities for on-site recreation.

The surrounding San Marcos area is full of opportunities for fun, whether that means a quick drink with friends or an entire day spent exploring a nearby town.

  • Wine and beer connoisseurs can visit Middleton Brewing, The Root Cellar Café Brewery or Three Dudes Winery for a locally made beverage. The winery also offers a view of the San Marcos River and hosts public and private outdoor events.
  • Two major outlet shopping centers offer a combined total of more than 350 stores and restaurants. The San Marcos Premium Outlets has 145 stores with top-name brands such as Gucci, The North Face and Pottery Barn. Dining options include Branding Iron BBQ, Auntie Anne’s pretzels and Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen. Tanger Outlets has Tommy Hilfiger, Build-A-Bear Workshops, Timberland and other famous brands. Its restaurants include Cracker Barrel, Chipotle Mexican Grill and Outback Steakhouse.
  • The historic Square in downtown San Marcos is home to one-of-a-kind local boutiques and restaurants. Events throughout the year include farmer’s markets, parades and an Art & Wine Weekend.
  • Nearby getaway spots attract visitors who enjoy history, nature and outdoor recreation. The Gruene historic district in nearby New Braunfels is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Blanco is a Hill Country town centered around the beautiful Blanco River. Outdoor lovers will enjoy swimming or trout fishing in the river and hiking at Blanco State Park. Wimberley also offers swimming in the Blanco River at Blue Hole Regional Park and Jacob’s Well underwater cave.
