This Review is NOT Sugar Coated. Just Truth - 3/17/2019
San Antonio is not a city for professionals. Nepotism is the way this town is run. You have generation after generation of people here who NEVER left San Antonio and they have closed minds so they dont like people from out of town (Especially from out of state). Workplaces here are full of gossip and no one can stop it because everyone knows each other so they dont want to discipline their "friends". I have seen group bullying one person, making up lies about them and all agreeing to go along woth the lie just to get someone fired for no reason. (Seriously, thats how mentally screwed up San Antonio people are)

If you are university educated and good at your career it doesnt matter, there will always be at least 1 person at your workplace who has lived in San Antonio their whole life and got their job through their friend, uncle, cousin, mom, dad, brother, grandpa, etc. These people are bitter and ready to try and make an example of you if you arent from there so you will Read More

San Antonio is a Disgrace - 3/5/2019
Lived in San Antonio almost my whole life. After Hurricane Harvey they shippd a lot of lowlife criminals from New Orleans over here and gave them free housing and all kinds of freebies.

With that influx came the increased crime you see now, just lok in news, drive by shootings, robberies and all kinds of junk.

Then San Antonio is so obsessed ith them they adopt this Mardi Gras stuff. New Orleans has Mardi Gras , San Antonio has Fiesta. I dont see New Orleans having Hispanic themed Fiestas, why should we have black themed Mardi Gras.

San Antonio has become black obsessed. You see the women runing around with half black kids and the father is nowhere to be found. They never go after them for child support because they know they cant hold a job. So they tell their parents to care for the kid and let welfare take care of the rest.

So if you are black come on down to San Antonio. Plenty of low self estee Hispanic and white women who will Read More

San Antonio, the town for transplants, not natives - 3/2/2019
My family and I are natives to San Antonio and have grown up here from the very beginning. If you are transplant coming from anywhere else then you will enjoy the fact that you can outbid natives easily when it comes to the housing market. We have forgotten about our natives and continue to allow out of state people (thanks California) to come in and buy houses at jacked up ridiculous prices. I get it, supply and demand and all that, but if you have grown up here, be prepared to pay 200k on top of high property taxes at least to live in a decent neighborhood. This is just the norm and wages are stagnant because employers are too stingy to pay anything better than 50k. If you aren't a dual income family, forget about buying a house or living in a safe(r) part of town. The south, east, and west are rampant with crime while the north side keeps them out for the most part with sky high property taxes and housing costs.
Going 7 miles down the highway takes you 40 minutes because of Read More

San Antonio Is Growing For a Reason! - 2/17/2019
I have lived in San Antonio for almost 15 years. I'm in the very fast growing northeast side of town. My experience here has been overwhelmingly positive. People here are genuinely nice, helpful, and polite. There is a sincere pride in living here, in Texas, and in the United States. Is crime a problem? No more so than in other large cities. Our middle class neighborhood has been targeted for theft repeatedly over the years, that is true and unfortunate. But we have a great community that watches out for each other.
The heat can be unbearable. When it's still in the mid-to-upper 90's in October, it can wear you down. But I still prefer to be too hot than too cold!
I think many of the other reviews were written by people with a specific grudge. Talk to other people in your demographic to get a real feel for it here. Read More

San Antonio (Truth no one wants to say) - 1/20/2019
Sperlings is censoring reviews about the high crime and increase in violent crime in San Antonio.

When you look at teh crime rates they coincide with the influx of lowlives from New Orleans that were let into the city after they cried in Louisiana about hurricane in 2016. The naieve city of San Antonio let the criminals in from one of the most murderous city in the country (New Orleans).

Not only that the violent crime and shootings used to mostly be relegated to teh West Side or East Side. Now they are EVERYWHERE. Just in the first week of this year there were dozens of violent crimes. We are talking drive by, armed robbery, murder, just insane criminality.

With the New Orleans junkies came the increase in drug use as well, we are talking heavy drug like meth. Not to mention bums are now started to be numerous. This place is turning to Austin (a city 1 hour from here that is a liberal dump filled with drug addicted garbage and junkies and Read More

What No One Will Tell You About San Antonio - 1/15/2019
The news will say otherwise and claim this city is safe, this may have been true years ago, but it is no longer the case. So Bottom line is IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT MOVING HERE….THINK AGAIN THIS CITY IS INFECTED WITH CRIME. Plus you have DRUG ADDICT CITY (Austin) 1 hour away. There are better cities where people don’t act like animals. San Antonio is full of the trash.

This city has gone down the toilet and fast. Mostly thanks to the drug using piles of trash who think using or selling drugs is cool. Weak or absent father figures are a contributor as well. It’s not a coincidence that the influx of Louisiana criminals when Hurricane Harvey had them shipped over here and they mostly ALL stayed because the easy pickings that they saw in the city. With then came the more brazen drug-fueled crimes that you see now.

I can tell you that there is a new breed of brazen criminality gripping the city. These kinds of criminals are brazen. Take for instance recently Read More

Wasn't born here, but glad I moved here. - 12/26/2018
Coming from beautiful San Diego to San Antonio was an adjustment, hated it at first but soon fell in love with Texas in just a few months. It's not as pretty, sure, but it has its own charm. SA is more like a slower paced huge town than a city this size should be - still has a nice old-fashioned feel to it. It is getting crowded here so expect some traffic (nothing like San Diego or LA traffic though). There's plenty to do. I learned to fish here and tube down a river, saw fireflies and deer for the first time, and within a 15 minute drive outside the city limits you'll see endless stars. Not a lot of night life (a handful of hot spots) but the food is good almost anywhere. There's lots of attractions (SeaWorld, Six Flags, Riverwalk, Natural Bridge Cavern), some nice museums, the beach is about 2 1/2 hours away, two large lakes nearby for summer fun, festivals all year round, a few awesome concerts, a huge fair and rodeo every February, and Austin is just over an hour drive away.

San Antonio Full of Jealous and Lazy People - 12/21/2018
I lived here about 8 years ago and I can tell you this place was never good, but I had to return due to orking in medical field and getting pay upgrade with a hospital here after my residency elsewhere (What a mistake).

People here are generally lazy and I am Hispanic and since I have drive other Hispanics/Mexicans will try and bring you down if you are successful, usually by attempting to make fun of your success , excluding you, or trying to diminish achievments. (What we call "envidia") and there is a lot of it in this city.

Another thing I noticed after coming back here is the influx of negritos. I used to never see them , but now they hooked up with all the low class mexican women and have the mexican women pay all the bills and pay for an apartment so they are moving into sides of town they dont fit in because they have the ignorant mexican woman or a white woman paying for everything (dont tell me otherwise, Ive seen it too many times with my own Read More

Beware - 8/15/2018
Overall the crime rate is pretty good. Of course you have to worry about white collar crime and harrassment the kind that can drain your bank account and result in premature death. I would not move to the city due to a crazed vigilante group. Beware.  Read More

Good Review - 7/23/2018
I’ve read some of the older reviews of San Antonio and it is interesting to see all the different opinions. I have lived in Seattle, Atlanta, Naples, and Austin and they all have their pros and cons. I was able to find the beauty in all of these places. I think San Antonio is a gem as someone had written before. Someone criticized it’s laid back culture full of siestas and parties and I say YASSSS to this!! I was really tired of the rat race and San Antonio just offers a higher quality of life with less of that daily stress. Thank God a lot of San Antonio doesn’t care for or puts up with pretentiousness. A lot of great things are happening to the city and San Antonions will continue to celebrate a city full of soul. Yes, my soul is happier here because I live more authentically with less worry and more humility. Read More
