ABOUT SAN ANTONIO
Nestled on the banks of the San Antonio River in South Texas, San Antonio is a city very much in touch with its past, while at the same time embracing the present and keeping its eye firmly on the future. The seventh largest city by population in the United States, this ethnically and culturally diverse metropolitan is home to around 1.5 million people. Quaint, historically significant, and well-established neighborhoods surround a thoroughly modern downtown filled with parks, green spaces, and public art.
San Antonio is home to robust tourism – the Alamo and the iconic River Walk are just two of the city’s major attractions – as well as oil and gas, manufacturing, aerospace, and healthcare industries. The city has a gross domestic product of just under $97 billion per year and is ranked as the 15th best market in the U.S. for job growth. Named the 10th fastest growing city in the U.S. by Forbes in 2015, San Antonio also maintains an unemployment rate below the national average.
From diverse festivals to a vibrant music and arts scene to a deep appreciation for its own history and a robust local economy, San Antonio is a city that has it all and is a great place to visit, work, and live.
