San Marcos is located in an area locally referred to as Central Texas and has a current population of 46,685. The city is 29 miles southwest of Austin and 47 miles northeast of San Antonio. Interstate 35 is the main highway through the city. San Marcos is situated on the Balcones Fault, the boundary between the Hill Country and the Coastal Plains. Along the fault, many springs have popped up, such as the source of the San Marcos River, a notable water feature.
The area is considered to be among the oldest continuously inhabited sites in the Northern Hemisphere and is home to Texas State University–San Marcos which currently has a population of 34,087 students.
