San Antonio Reviews

San Antonio is a growing city with many great foods and attractions. It is known for its amazing tacos and is always opening fun new eateries. It was ranked by Amazon.com as the most romantic city in the U.S., and with good reason! With restaurants to fulfill any of your wildest desires, and fun and beautiful activities scattered throughout, I have truly enjoyed growing up in this city. The highways are of course busy during weekday rush hours, but the city's intricate highway system ensures that with a personal vehicle, you will always make it to your destination.

I would like to see better public transportation and wheelchair access.

The LGBTQ scene is going strong, but there is obvious collision with the conservative nature of most Texans.

Downtown is beautiful at night, though be aware that it is not without the less fortunate roaming the streets. I have never personally had a problematic interaction with a homeless in the downtown area.
Review San Antonio
San Antonio is a great city, around two million people live in this city! People from all races and culture are all connected through festivals and activities that the town has from time to time. Our most known is the battle of flowers which that day most people have a day off because it's a holiday in this city! The tourist usually go straight to downtown to see the riverwalk and eat the food down the river, also to see the Tower of Americas and some spooky haunted hotels. The main point in Downtown is the Alamo, which is a historical building from 1744! A war broke out between Texas and Mexico in 1835, because of wanting to be independent from Mexico. The Alamo defenders were outnumbered by thousands and is a symbol of heroic bravery to resisting the oppression and the struggle for the fight for independence.
San Antonio is a very eclectic city! It is an affordable, family-friendly type city that is growing very fast and getting very hip.New parks,restaurants, bar, hotels, and homes are popping up everywhere.The roads and highways here are great, the city itself is pretty clean, just the drivers are bad! There is alot of focus on a healthy lifestyle here even though tacos are sold everywhere. There is a lot of great parks around the city for you and your dog. Museums and movie cinemas are everywhere. There is more nightlife closer to the city center but you can find some great bars all around the city.
