What Bert Has To Say About San Antonio-New Braunfels Metro Area

San Antonio, a modern city with a distinct Hispanic influence, is the third largest city in Texas and has grown to become the the seventh largest in the United States. Most of the downtown area is attractive, with modern skyscrapers intermingled with historic sites (including the Alamo and the Spanish Governors Palace). The Paseo del Rio, or River Walk, contains shops and sidewalk cafes along the San Antonio River, and downtown entertainment is lively.
