What to expect
College town atmosphere practically everywhere in San Marcos.
What not to expect
A quite town. San Marcos is continuously growing and expanding considering it is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation today.
Different areas have different types of neighbors. You have the neighborhoods south of Craddock ave. that are very party oriented (i.e. The Retreat, Capstone Cottages) then you have a more mixed area on Aquarena Springs Dr. that consists of partying apartments and quiet apartments with more of a junior/senior crowd. You should pretty much expect mostly students everywhere you go. Party apartments would be include but not limited to: The Retreat, Capstone Cottages, The Avenue, Copper Beech, The Village on Telluride, Aspen Heights. Other apartment complexes are more sporadic.
This market consists mainly of apartment complexes. Houses are everywhere too but there is a strict zoning law here in San Marcos that say you need to have 2 of 3 tenants that are related in order to obtain a house. The rents for apartment complexes are reasonable. You will have high end and affordable all over the city.
