Best Place to Live in San Antonio, Texas

If you enjoy hispanic culture, this town is for you. If you don't speak Spanish and are looking for a job after relocation, good luck because you will need it. Very few applications on line here or in person do not include the question of whether you are bilingual. The heat in summer is not tolerable without air-conditioning, and if you are not of hispanic culture then you are in the minority here. While the night life downtown is active most weekends, it again revolves primarily around Tex-Mex and hispanic culture. The jobs are present for Master's Degree holders in Teaching, or high school level service jobs. If you are somewhere in between these levels you may be looking for a job for a while. The town is set up nice for tourism if you enjoy shopping, lavish hotels, and touring the city. The river walk is pretty and clean, but mostly hotels and food on the walk. Not to many places to sit unless you are eating at a cafe. The Zoo and Sea World are great for kids. The parks for walking and biking are plentiful but not safe at night. Lots to do and see but do a lot of homework about the area before you move here permanently.
