Welcome to the brand new City of San Marcos website!

We’re excited to announce the launch of our brand new website. If you’re a seasoned visitor to, you may have checked your URL twice when you landed on the page. Don’t adjust your dial – we have a whole new look. You’ll notice new content, better navigation, more photos, and yes, a fresh new design. Be sure to check back in after 5:30 pm when the site transforms to show off the vibrant evening scene in San Marcos.

Take a look around and then tell us what you think
