Great experience for my granddaughter. She was so excited to see the turtles sunny. Looking at the bottom of the river watching schools if fish swimming had her shrieking with delight. This would be a great field lesson for my school if we were nearby.

What You'll Get


Like smashing a snow globe against your forehead, tours can open up a fascinating new world right before your eyes. Go beyond the surface with this Groupon.

About 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.
