    San Antonio is a growing city.This city provides job opportunities anywhere in the city. Construction, office, bank, retail,Food service. Our employment rate is high and there is always opportunities in this city. Our highway system is great. What I love the most about san Antonio is their culture! I have gone to Austin and there Mexican restaurants are not the same as San Antonio! This city is passionate about our Hispanic culture, we have an outrageous number of traditional Mexican restaurants that will blow your huger away. Anywhere you go, you will find authentic Mexican food. No other city has the best Bean and cheese tacos, carne guisada and Barbacoa! We have history in our city, food, tradition, culture, employment, and everything you can think about. We even have a river surrounded by shopping centers and fancy restaurants. I would like to change there public school education.
    San Antonio is an older town. There is something for everyone to do, if you're a night owl, you can always enjoy late night bars or strolls along the famous Riverview. Although not popular for its live music, you can always find a band playing somewhere; from events at the symphony, heavy metal in a bar, or some classic country where you can dance the night away. Experience amusement parks such as Fiesta Texas, or Sea World, guaranteed to give you plenty of excitement and adventure. There's also outdoor shopping centers that allow you to experience the beauty of the day while purchasing gifts and entertainment for yourself, family, loved ones, or friends. The people In San Antonio are happy to show you around to the nearest tourist attraction. But be warned! We don't all ride horses or eat snakes! And don't believe anyone telling you to drink the water from the Riverwalk! Overall, San Antonio is a pleasant area to settle down. Good Schools, good food, and is nice and relaxing.
    Climb Enchanted Rock! Legend goes that Native American warriors were killed there and still haunt the rock along with a tribe princess. Whether the ghosts are there is up for debate, but there’s no question about the majestic beauty of the granite formation that peaks 425 feet above the ground. Take in the view at the Tower of the Americas. Talk about a tourist attraction. The tower was built in 1968 as part of the World’s Fair and remains a big destination for out-of-towners. But don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it. Take in an unmatched view of the city from the 750-foot tower. Go the family-friendly route by purchasing a ticket to the observation deck admission includes access to the kid favorite Skies over Texas 4D ride or impress a date at the top floor Chart House Restaurant. Our favorite way to experience the Tower’s charms, with a drink in hand. The bar’s happy hour prices rival the stunning view.
