Summer is here, Hitchers! We know that sometimes the slow summer season can get repetitive, so if you are looking for something different and fun to do, The Hitch is the place to be. Here are six reasons why The Hitch is the perfect summer hangout:

1) The Hitch has a sunshade, so you can beat the heat. 

We know the Texas heat can be brutal. That’s why we put in a protective sunshade just in time for summer. Come check it out!

2) The Hitch is walking distance from the river.

Spending the afternoon at the river is a favorite pastime of San Martians, but swimming, floating and sunbathing can really work up an appetite. Luckily, The Hitch is within walking distance from the San Marcos River! Plus, The Hitch’s outdoor location means it’s okay to come dressed in a swimsuit!

3) Can't agree on what to eat? No Problem! The Hitch has variety.

“Where do you want to eat?” “What are you in the mood for?” are the questions that have plagued couples for decades. With barbecue, Colombian, burgers, breakfast food, pitas and more, The Hitch has something for everyone!

4) You can play Texas-sized board games, like Giant Jenga!

Ignite your competitive side by playing a round or two of giant Jenga! Play against your friends, significant other or family member while you’re waiting for your food. You can also play cornhole or checkers! Just ask Fred at The Patty Wagon for beanbags or the checkers board!

5) Make it a "staycation" and try food from all over the world.

Don’t want to deal with the hassle of travel? Can’t afford expensive plane tickets? Well at The Hitch, you can try foods from vacation destinations all over the world! WANderLust has everything from Italian to Indian food. Try the Loco Moco at Dreamland to get a taste of Hawaii! El Sabor de Mi Tierra has the most authentic Colombian street food you will find in San Marcos. Go Greek at St. Pitas and cool down at Mambo Freeze. Try some Mexican coffee from Café Azteca or indulge in some good old American food at Patty Wagon and Smoked Out.

6) Eat dinner at The Hitch and then walk over to the Summer in the Park concert series.

Every Thursday night from June 1 to August 10, you can enjoy a free concert. Concerts start at 7:30 p.m. and they span a multitude of genres. After enjoying a meal at The Hitch, just walk on over to the San Marcos Plaza Park and enjoy the show! You can find more information, and the full Summer in the Park line-up HERE.
