Shopping in San Marcos, TX
Even with the amount of people shopping online these days, nothing really replaces the enjoyment of browsing local stores and and products. San Marcos offers a variety of shopping venues for residents and visitors, with many more available within a short drive.
San Marcos is famed for its shopping. So much so that in 2006, ABC’s “The View” ranked the city as the third best shopping destination in the world. The city has a number of interesting boutique stores for people looking for unusual clothes and gifts. But the big draw here is the two mega shopping outlets, Prime Outlets and Tanger Outlet Center, which offer a combined 1.2 million square feet of shopping.
