San Antonio is the second-largest city in Texas, with a population of 1.3 million (2.6 million if you count the whole metro area). The city is perhaps best known for its historical landmarks (the Alamo and San Fernando Cathedral, to name a couple) and its expansive River Walk. Regarding cuisine, there are still plenty of amazing Tex-Mex options. However, the local food scene has also evolved to include more chef-driven restaurants cooking with local and artisanal ingredients. Those moving to San Antonio should expect hot summers and mild winters.
