Living in San Antonio

The River Walk, the Alamo, and a number of historic missions bring tourists to San Antonio, Texas, but it’s also an attractive place to live with an interesting downtown. There’s great Tex Mex food here, of course, and a thriving arts scene. There’s San Antonio B-Cycle, a bike share program with over two dozen stations to take advantage of the city’s fine weather and mostly flat topography.

VIA runs convenient bus service into downtown from the airport, you’re rarely more a ten minute walk from a bus stop. The military is a big employer in San Antonio, but it’s also home to the corporate headquarters for H-E-B Supermarkets and USAA, the banking and insurance provider. The city has the diverse population and character you’d expect from a city that’s just over 100 miles to the Mexican border.
