Yes, it’s true. The U.S. Census Bureau has reported that San Marcos, TX is now the fastest growing city in the United States. I’m very fond of San Marcos and I miss it dearly. I once lived in San Marcos, which is home to my alma mater Texas State University. I was there in 2005 and graduated in 2008 when the population was just under 30,000 and even less when students vacated during the holidays and summer. Just 5 years later that number has ballooned to over 50,000!

Just 25 miles south of Austin, and 45 miles north of San Antonio, this beautiful “Gateway to the Hill Country” sits on IH35 where commuters can easily travel to-and-from the two major metroplexes. Famous people like George Strait and former president Lyndon B. Johnson once called San Marcos their home as students at Texas State.  Visit my site for a list of all available properties in the area. With it’s own river, university, hill country to west, flat lands to the east, bars (at the square downtown), and specialty shops, San Marcos is full of life all packed into a town whose city limits barely stretch 8 miles north to south. Beautiful, historic homes are easy to find in San Marcos, especially closer to downtown and the Texas State University campus.
