San Antonio is the most visited city in Texas having the Alamo, the Riverwalk and Sea World, if it's still there. San Antonio has a huge Hsipanic influence and there are Mexican restaurants everywhere, not counting Taco bell.
San Antonio residents are friendly but, damn are they fat. San Antonio ranks among the fattest cities in the country--perhaps from all that greasy Mexican food. The pace of life in San Antonio is slow and laid back--nothing like New York.
San Antonio is easily among the most affordable cities in the country. You can find a 3-bedroom, 2 bath home for under $150,000. Try doing that in California, Florida or the Northeast. San Antonio is a nice place to visit, but I don't think I would want to live there. Perhaps that's why the housing is so cheap.
this city has to rely on. There is absolutely no character in this city. I think its OK to visit but it blows to live here.
Specifically, a self abortion administered via canned air and a plastic coat hanger. The canned air is extended into the uterus and expelled, freezing the embryo. Then the plastic coat hanger is use to scrape the frost and ice out.
The place to live if you want to get fat. We have a total of 85 McDonald's (yes I've counted) in city alone, not to mention all the other food chains. Has frequently been listed as one of the fattest cities in the nation, right up there with Houston. Due to the extreme weather, it makes people very reluctant to go out and exercise when they have the time to do so (aka summer)
You can't drive for more than 5 miles in San Antonio without seeing "Go Spurs Go" somewhere. That's all San Antonio has, is the Spurs. If you don't like basketball, apparently you're a traitor to the city.
You know you're from San Antonio if you've been to the Alamo, right outside of it, but never actually walked inside (they have a walk in tourist thing). The majority of people who say how great SA is, have just been to downtown SA and seen all the tourist attractions like the Riverwalk. If you ever hear someone say how they went to SA, chances are one of the first things they will mention is the Riverwalk.
Construction is abundant, no, unavoidable in San Antonio. We have so much construction everywhere, that it's ridiculous. The city takes forever to do anything, and we've been working on the "new freeways" for the past 10 years, hell, BEFORE THE ALAMODOME WAS BUILT.
Immigration is a huge problem for San Antonio. It's one of the most immigrated cities in the USA, next to New York. There was a book written, called "The House on Mango Street" by a Spanish immigrant. It's supposed to tell the story about her life and all that, but it basically confirms every single Hispanic stereotype people give them in San Antonio.
The crime is ridiculous. Speeding goes on everywhere, there's extremely frequent murders on the news, and the lack of policemen is almost unbelievable.
We are incredibly behind in technology, but spend our cities money on useless things like an arena for the Spurs, just so we can pimp them out to other cities and say "Go Spurs Go" even more. Our technology is incredibly out of date and we are a very ignorant city in this aspect. Go to somewhere like a Seattle school, and everyone has iPods. Go to San Antonio, and the people with iPods get theirs stolen.
There is a major conflict between the Whites & the Hispanics in SA. When the Alamodome was in production, white people purposely got paid less than Hispanics, to the point where a Hispanic JANITOR would be paid more than a white secretary. On the other side of the fence, you also see major distaste towards Mexicans if you visit enough white homes on the north side. There's been continuous racism and counter-racism between these two races going on for as long as one can remember.
"Fuck no, dude. Those beaners can keep their damn fucking rice and beans."
