San Marcos, a city with a population exceeding 37,000 students, is the proud home of Texas State University, the fifth largest public university in Texas. Business Insiders recognizes the city as one of the “Most Exciting Small Cities in America,” while the U.S. Census Bureau awarded San Marcos the distinction of fastest-growing city in the nation for three consecutive years between 2013 and 2015.
Over the past decade, San Marcos has experienced a notable 30 percent increase in population. This growth, coupled with the development in neighboring cities such as Kyle, Buda, New Braunfels, and Schertz/Cibolo, has made the city and the IH-35 corridor an appealing area for investment and development. Experts predict that the population surge in these Central Texas cities will give rise to a mega-region between Austin and San Antonio in the coming years!
