About San Antonio

  • San Antonio, while being the 7th largest city in the United States, boasts a small-town feel. Mostly known for its tourism, San Antonio has a new, up-and-coming restaurant scene; in fact, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Creative Cities Network recognized San Antonio, Texas as a Creative City of Gastronomy. San Antonio is one of only two cities in the USA with this status. We also boast a local entertainment & cultural scene with music, coffee shops, museums, breweries, and outdoor activities. If the San Antonio Spurs basketball team is not in season, we are only a short drive from the Texas Wine Country outside of Fredericksburg, the live music scene in Austin, and the beach in Padre Island. San Antonio is in the process of developing a network of hiking, running, and biking trails. We are especially proud of the recently developed Pearl District – a 22-acre site complete with farmers markets, culinary destinations, 5-star hotel resort, night life, and splash-pad.
  • The city enjoys a low cost of living, with a composite cost of living index of 92.3, below the national average.
