San Marcos is a great place to retire, according to a new article featured in Southern Living magazine’s August edition.

From the crystal-clear waters of the San Marcos River to Kissing Tree, the community designed to welcome 3,000 homeowners aged 55 and above, the article paints a picture of a modern and convenient retirement in San Marcos.

“San Marcos is a unique place that caters to the lifestyles of people of all ages,” said Rebecca Ybarra-Ramirez, Director of Destination Services. “We are excited to see the City’s abundant opportunities for the vibrant and active retired adult receiving recognition in this national magazine.”

In 2018, Forbes named San Marcos the best city for retirement in Texas and in 2015 they named San Marcos one of the top 25 cities in the US for retirement. To view recent San Marcos Rankings, visit
