Centrally located in southern Texas, San Antonio is a thriving military hub with four military bases. It is also the home to the South Texas Medical Center, a leader in medical research and education in the region. But San Antonio is perhaps most famous for The Alamo, which draws tourists from around the world to experience the exhibits of the legendary battle and take in the history of Texas. Whether you’re headed to a Spurs game, the San Antonio Zoo, or SeaWorld, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see that the city is alive with both modern attractions and historic remembrances.
San Antonio offers an abundance of bus stops and park and rides, so if you choose to steer away from traffic on the roads, it’s entirely possible to get around town via Metropolitan Transit. While the city as a whole isn’t particularly walkable, biking around town is certainly an option, and with the growing popularity of their B-cycle bike sharing program, riding to work or for pleasure has never been easier.
