Cultural Activities





Diverse history abounds in San Marcos. A stroll through Residential Historic Districts and the heritage sites at Veramendi Plaza will transport you back to a simpler time. At the Commemorative Air Force Exhibit located in a 1943 vintage wooden hangar, you can get up close to rare working WWII planes including ones used in the film Tora, Tora, Tora. Dick’s Classic Garage Car Museum features more than 80 of the finest cars ever made in the United States. With pristine models dating back from the 1900s through the 1950s, the collection is a tribute to the American passion with the automobile. The LBJ Museum of San Marcos provides a personal glimpse into the life of U.S. President Lyndon Baines Johnson’s formative years as a student at what is now Texas State University.
