    there's a bowling alley in town that's pretty popular, that is not too terribly far from campus, although you would need a car to get there. sewell park is also a prime spot for fun, especially in the warm months when you can cool off by jumping into the river! it's located on campus, and has beach volleyball courts and other activities to choose from.

    the main thing to do for fun is to visit the san marcos river. the river starts at massive natural spring and flows throughout the entire town. there is the aquarena/meadow center which has boats with glass on the bottom, kayaks, informative exhibits, bird-watching, a walkway along the river, and a lot more. if anything its the most popular spot in san marcos.

    Go to Sewell Park to float in the San Marcos River, it's always a decent temperature. Attending sporting events is always exciting and you could win cool stuff.

    The things to do for fun is rock climbing, playing sand volleyball, ultimate frisbee, floating the river, playing basketball, going to all the sports games for free, and joining in on many different student activities.

    There are tons of things you can do in this small college town, from shopping at the outlet malls to floating down the river on a hot day, you can find almost anything to do here whether it's by yourself or with a group of friends. San Marcos has lots of little shops on the square, great trails for hiking, and is nestled between 2 major cities, San Antonio and Austin, Tx. There's recreational sports, nightlife, and also tons of student organization to be a part of, which are a part of many student lives at the University.

    There are so many things you can do for fun. One of those things is to go to the rivers near it.

    San Marcos is a cute, lively little town nestled in between Austin and San Antonio. There is always something to do- from the outlet mall only a few minutes away from campus, to a 45 min drive (you can make it there in 30 min with no traffic) to Austin and an hour to San Antonio. The students seem to know how to have fun- the first time I saw the river running through campus students were floating in it and paddling and swimming towards the small waterfalls.
