San Antonio, Texas, has experienced a great increase in population recently, making the already hot destination spot an even greater attraction for those interested in Texas life and history.
The city of 1,409,019 people has had a 6.1 percent population increase in the past five years, contributing to its economic and tourism developments. The entire metropolitan region is among the largest in the country. While most of its income comes from the military or government civil services, San Antonio is also known for the 20 million visitors that travel there each year, many to see the Alamo or the River Walk area.
San Antonio sits on 460.93 square miles and boasts Texas’ first museum of modern art, as well as the Texas Transportation Museum, the Texas Rangers Museum and the Woodlawn Theater. Lots of creative and educational outlets exist in the San Antonio metropolitan area for people with all sorts of interests.
In its subtropical climate — with hot summers and warm winters — nothing is more fun for a family on vacation than visiting Six Flags Fiesta Texas and hopping on some roller coasters, or visiting Splashtown to cool off on really hot days. Whether you are there to visit or to settle down, San Antonio is a hub of urban life in south central Texas and has a great deal of diversity and opportunity for exploration.
