    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.
    Review San Antonio
    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.
    Food in San Antonio is fantastic! well-diversified gourmet options such as, Jamaican, Korean BBQ, PHO, Ramen, Cuban cuisine, not to mention the ongoing trend of my favorite, FOOD TRUCKS! San Antonio has several food truck parks and individual food trucks along the side of road. I thoroughly enjoy taking my dog out to The Block around the UTSA area for some drinks and food truck food! San Antonio has developed a reoccurring event called First Friday, ever first Friday of every month. This event concentrates in the best of local artists and musicians of San Antonio. You’ll find art is displayed and musicians perform along the streets of South Alamo. Make sure you stop in at Tito’s Mexican Restaurant for an order of street tacos before hopping over a few feet away to The Friendly spot for a cold one! This area of town commonly referred to as South-Town, has what many locals call an “Austin” feel. I am happy to see that San Antonio is expanding in the entertainment scene.
