8 Reasons to Visit San Antonio

San Antonio is a great place to live and I’m not just saying that because I live here. I was born and raised in a small town right outside of San Antonio, named New Braunfels, TX. When I was in high school the only thing I wanted was to get out of that town where every one knew everybody. Where there were only a handful of fast food joints, no Starbucks, and no where for young kids to party. I thought about moving to Austin, but quickly decided that was TOO much city for this small town girl. Turning my mind south I settled on San Antonio. It was big without being too BIG. Fast forward 8 years and I’m still here, still loving my city. Time and Leisure recently named us FRIENDLIEST CITY!! You can read the article here and check out the other cities on the list. Fort Worth, which is about 4 hours away was ranked #7 and Houston was #2, so yay Texas! Will you excuse me while and brag a bit and share with y’all some things that make San Antonio great?
