The last few weeks of Texas summer are among us, so we've made a list of all of our favorite things to see and do in the beautiful city of San Marcos before we say farewell to our favorite season.

Movies in Your Park 

Who doesn't love an outdoor movie? The last screening is July 28, so pull out the lawn chairs, grab a few friends and dive into Dolphin Tale 2 at the Plaza Park. It all begins at 7:30pm! Hitch Tip: Arrive a little early to get a good spot for the film! 

The San Marcos River 

One of our favorite gems is located right around the corner from The Hitch. Hundreds of people travel to the San Marcos River everyday during summer to float on and enjoy the sun. Hitch Tip: Grab a meal at The Big Kahuna before taking a dip into the cool water. (We hear the fish tacos are amazing.)

San Marcos Art Walls 

If you haven't noticed lately, our downtown district is transforming into a beautiful art scene. Have you checked out the vibrant murals located around The Square? Hitch Tip: Bring your selfie stick and get the whole group involved for a 78666 photoshoot.

Meadows Center: Glass Bottom-Boat Tours 

Observe the underwater life of the magical Spring Lake during a glass bottom boat tour at the Meadows Center for Water and the Environment. Hitch Tip: Count how many Soft Shell turtles you spot! 

Wonderworld Park

A unique amusement park that is a little underrated, Wonder World Park is only a short trip for many San Marcos locals. Head to the top of the Tejas Observation Tower, watch water run uphill in the Anti-Gravity House or get to the Petting Park to check out the deer and furry animals. Hitch Tip: Take a tour of the Balcones Fault Line Cave for a full underground cave experience! 

Passport to SMTX 

Yes, we know, when summer ends - school begins. Kick off the Fall semester during Passport to SMTX. Explore local eateries and shops during the Scavenger Hunt, get your groove on with the fun tunes on the Square, challenge your friends to a duel inside one of the pop-up inflatable games and have a blast before the bells get to ringing. EAT EM' UP CATS! Hitch Tip: Be on the lookout for a QR Code posting at one of our food trucks for a chance to win cool prizes throughout the scavenger hunt. 

The Hitch

Last but not least, enjoy some delicious food from one of our 8 food trucks. Hitch Tip: Bring your furry best friend and tag #HitchinPups when you get a puppy cone from MamboFreeze!
