San Antonio

A good choice. We are based here in San Antonio at 8482 Fredericksburg Road, and know everything there is to know about moving here. Home to 1.5 million people, it’s the seventh most populous city in the country and second in Texas as well as the southern U.S. The food is amazing, whether you’re into haute cuisine, tacos, or barbecue. San Antonio is chock full of local coffee roasters, breweries and wineries.

Hit the River Walk, a pedestrian-only street situated along the San Antonio River and lined with restaurants, bars and local shops. It also hosts annual festivals and fairs, something not to be missed. Check out a Spurs game at the AT&T Center.

All in all, San Antonio is a city on the rise, not just in terms of population but also its real estate and tech business scenes.

Alamo Heights
