About San Antonio
The Alamo City is one of Texas’ most historic and charming metropolitan areas, blending Old West history, Spanish heritage, and all the energy of a big city yet with the warm, welcoming feel of a small town. According to the estimates released by the U.S. Census Bureau, San Antonio ranks second nationally in increase in population and third nationally among U.S. cities with the strongest numeric growth since 2010. As the nation’s seventh-largest city and Texas’ second largest city, residents are drawn to San Antonio by its housing prices, which are comparatively lower than other large U.S. cities, along with the area’s sunny weather and mild winters, rich diversity, excellent public and private schools, abundance of green space, professional sports, top-notch restaurants, two major amusement parks, shopping, nightlife and entertainment, and a strong regional economy, plus easy access to a major airport. Stroll or take a river barge along The River Walk, the city’s 15-mile urban waterway. On the weekends, you are just a short drive from the bustling heart of the city to the beauty and wide open spaces of the Texas Hill Country with its rolling hills and big Texas skies along with the area’s abundant restaurant, shops, and galleries. You’re also conveniently located to explore Austin (less than 90 minutes), Houston (less than three hours), Dallas (about four hours) or the beaches of Galveston (less than four hours). And, as a resident of Texas, you’ll pay no state income tax.
