The Meadows Center

Run by Texas State University, The Meadows Center (formerly Aquarena) introduces visitors to the lush diversity of the San Marcos Springs and intricate system of waterways. Glass-bottomed boats set out for guided tours of Spring Lake, gazing at the aquatic life and University midterm papers below. Above the springs that bubble up from the bottom, soft shell turtles and bluegill sunfish swim in the clear waters and songbirds survey the sky. Eight endangered species populate the springs, including beetles and two species of salamander. On land, visitors can explore gardens of native Texan plants or a hall of nature exhibit.

A wonderful place to visit if you're in the San Marcos area. The water is crystal clear and our guide was very interesting. We upgraded to the 45 min trip and glad we did. The kids ages 2 & 6 thoroughly enjoyed it too.
