This month, we will be spotlighting the Wonder World Drive area of San Marcos. This convenient neighborhood is popular with young professionals and students who prefer to live a bit further from campus. Apartment complexes in this area tend to be newer, more luxurious, and gated.
The Wonder World neighborhood is located a bit further from campus, but it’s still a quick ten minute drive so you can get to Texas State quickly if you are a student or employee. This area is located in southern San Marcos, just off I-35 on Wonder World Drive, named for Wonder World, an amusement park located off of Wonder World Drive. This unusual theme park has Wonder Cave, which is the only commercially operated dry-formed, (formed by an earthquake), cave in the United States. It also has an anti-gravity house, a miniature train and a wildlife park.
