San Antonio, Texas Info Snack

San Antonio (/sæn æntoni.o/ Spanish for "Saint Anthony"), officially the City of San Antonio, is the seventh most populous city in the United States and the second most populous city in both Texas and the Southern United States. Founded as a Spanish mission and colonial outpost in 1718, the city became the first chartered civil settlement in Texas in 1731, making it the state's oldest municipality. The city's deep history is contrasted with its rapid growth: it was the fastest-growing of the top ten largest cities in the United States from 2000 to 2010, and the second from 1990 to 2000. Straddling the regional divide between South and Central Texas, San Antonio anchors the southwestern corner of an urban megaregion colloquially known as the "Texas Triangle".

Very low crime rates. Schools tend to be top-notch, especially in NEISD. Food is fantastic, people are super friendly, and it has the largest tree canopy in any urban city in the USA (and the world?)

The Tex-Mex food is to die for. Watch out for 1604 and I-10 during rush hours, it gets nuts. Drivers are absolutely awful. AKA Military City USA... SO many military bases. And don't forget the Alamo

Crime is not to bad and the schools here are good. It is a very family oriented city and it is growing fast as well.

I like all the places you can eat at in San Antonio and there is a lot for tourist to do. I did not like that you have to drive everywhere and I wish the city was more urban but overall it's a good place to live in.

San Antonio just offers a higher quality of life than other cities in Texas. Good for Family and business.

We love the climate if you can withstand the hot summers where temp reach 100F or above on some days mainly in July and August.

, "Tell me about your experience" isn't an invitation to give an open-ended response. Unfortunately, many job candidates make that mistake, offering a lengthy, unfocused summary of their resume

The stars dressed in black in solidarity for the Time's Up and ... Golden Globes: Dressed in black, who stood out — the good and the bad .

I really enjoyed it when we went to to the Sea world down there when I was a teenager. Then in high school senior I played at tthe NBA Spurs gym against a team and then the next day we watched Michael Jordan and the wizards played the San Antonio Spurs. It was an awesome experience there. From the weather to the Hispanic culture was awesome experience. I would like to live down there too.

What stood out was the Alamo, the Riverwalk and the beautiful Hispanic culture there. It is awesome visiting there.

San Antonio Texas is one of my favorite places to visit, year after year! The locals are so friendly and helpful. This is truly a hospitality town. There are so many places to visit and things to do. The Riverwalk, to the Alamo , the San Antonio Zoo, Seaworld, Fiesta Texas, the list goes on. This city takes multiple visits to be able to see all the sights. The shopping and restaurants in this town are top notch. There is no better place in all of Texas to have your fill of Tex-mex dining.

Be sure and find a local guide that will take you to the best authentic restaurants in town. Eat where the locals eat. You can find a chain restaurant anywhere, in any city. So definitely go off the beaten path to some hole in the wall restaurants for the best cuisine experience. Be sure and ask for local drinks at any bar or club you go to. Chamoy, sour pickles and hot Takis are the best garnishes for any margarita, beer or daquiri. Try a Michelada! Especially during the Fiesta celebration that takes place in April. That would be the best time of year to visit San Antonio. And if you want to avoid the touristy aspect of the Alamo, seek out the Espada missions (very tranquil and beautiful historical sight) Swing by the haunted railroad tracks too!
