Fun Things to Do in San Marcos
1) Spend a day shopping.
If you love to shop, San Marcos offers plenty of places to do it. In addition to North City, there are also the San Marcos Premium Outlets, the Tanger Outlets, and many other shopping destinations.
2) Head to the park.
One of the great things about San Marcos is that there’s so much sun to soak up, and natural greenery to enjoy. If you’re looking to spend a day in the great outdoors, a good place to begin is at Rio Vista Park, where you’ll find courts, walking trails, pools, and so much more.
3) Work Out!
Join us at North City to engage in some physical fitness. Specifically, we welcome you to check out the climbing walls, yoga classes, and spa areas offered at the amazing new Mesa Rim Climbing Gym.
4) See a movie.
Even during the COVID era, there are still some great ways to catch current and classic films. San Marcos residents are all very familiar with the Stars & Stripes, a popular drive-in movie destination. Enjoy a movie from the comfort of your own car!
5) Check out the Farmers Market
If you’d like to check out some local produce, baked goods, and artisanal products, the best place to do it is at the San Marcos Farmers Market. We’re proud to host this event right here at North City, every Tuesday from 3pm until 7pm. Hope to see you soon!
6) Learn something.
If you like museums, you’ll find several really interesting ones here in the San Marcos area. For example, how much do you know about the 36th President of the United States? Expand your knowledge by spending a little time at the LBJ Museum, another local favorite.
7) Hear some live music.
North City offers live music performances on a pretty regular basis, all with safe and comfortable outdoor seating. Come on down and enjoy some drinks and some good vibes. Bring a friend, too! Check out the live music calendar at the North City website.
8) Go tubing.
Make a splash at the San Marcos Lions Club, where you can rent a tube and spend a warm afternoon getting wet. Thanks to the sunny San Marcos weather, this is a decent way to pass the time throughout the year!
Those are just a few of our top picks for things to do in San Marcos. We hope to see you in the neighborhood, and especially see you here at North City, sometime soon.
