If Austin is too cerebral for you, there's always San Marcos where it's practically Spring Break year round in the rowdy college town. The local Edward's Aquifer spring feeds the San Marcos River a continuous supply of the clearest waters in the state and is extremely popular for canoeing, tubbing and rafting (thus providing the setting for Spring Break like beach mayhem). The most popular option is to get some buddies together and an extra inner tube, one for the ice chest of beer, of course, and a have yourself a good float down the ol' river.

Located between Austin and San Antonio, on the I-35 corridor, San Marcos is a town of about fifty thousand people. Texas State University, the teacher's college that President Lyndon Johnson attended is in San Marcos.

A popular shopping destination for many international tourists because it's home to the Premium and Tanger Outlet malls. It's also home to Texas State University (formerly Southwest Texas University). The campus is located a couple blocks from downtown San Marcos, a small cozy square of shops, bars and cafes. A lot of the population in this town is comprised of college students. One of the most popular attractions is the river. When it's warm, the San Marcos river is filled with people swimming, tubing and snorkeling.
