 The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University will host a Fourth of July tour and fireworks viewing party at Spring Lake for guests of all ages to enjoy a unique, fun-filled celebration of American Independence. 

Spring Lake is even more majestic when experienced at sunset. Hop aboard a historic glass-bottom boat to enjoy breathtaking views of the sun setting over Spring Lake. 

This exclusive, evening tour will offer visitors a rare opportunity to see the aquatic wildlife that emerge after sunset. Upgrade to a VIP ticket and receive a complimentary adult beverage during the tour. Tours will start at 7:30 and 8 p.m. 

Head upstairs to The Meadows Center’s rooftop for an exclusive view of the San Marcos fireworks show from the rooftop and watch the fireworks glow against the crystal clear waters of Spring Lake. Snacks and refreshments will be available. The sunset glass-bottom boat cruise packages guarantees your spot on the roof.  If you do not buy a boat cruise ticket package, a $5 suggested admission for the rooftop viewing will be available for purchase at the door. Guests are encouraged to bring a chair.  

Ticket packages range from $12 to $20 per person; children 3 and under are free. Visit for more information and to purchase tickets. 

The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University was named following a generous gift from The Meadows Foundation. The Meadows Center inspires research, innovation and leadership that ensures clean, abundant water for the environment and all humanity, and is led by Executive Director Andrew Sansom, Ph.D.
