Apartments in San Marcos/Lockhart, Texas are just a short drive from Austin, but located in lovely towns. You will be near a major university and many outdoor recreation sites, as well as have access to good shopping. Both cities are rich in history in addition to being in a great Texas location.

The City of San Marcos is a charming town positioned right at the entrance to the Texas Hill Country, between Austin and San Antonio. It is about 30 miles from Austin. This area is sometimes referred to as the "Jewel of the Corridor" and Texas State University is located here. The San Marcos River provides ample recreation opportunities.

Lockhart is a similar distance from Austin and is also a smaller town. Historic homes blend with recently built subdivisions to give this city a mixed feel; a combination of small-town atmosphere and continued growth. A couple of apartment buildings have recently gone up in the area, providing ample space and new living quarters for renters. Lockhart State Park provides an area for some great outdoor fun, and there is plenty to do in town, such as antiquing or kicking back to sample some good Texas barbecue.
