When it comes to the cities in the United States of America, there only a few that quite do it like San Antonio. But when you hear of San Antonio, you would probably first think of the Spurs if you’re a sports fan, or some buffalo wings if you’re really into food. The thing is, the Alamo City has a lot to offer all those who are looking for a good place to tour around.
But before we get to that, why is it called Alamo city in the first place? Well, that is because of the fact that the Alamo is located in San Antonio. For all those who have no idea what that is, it is basically a historic mission or site when the Spanish were around. It is also most commonly referred to as the battle of the Alamo, where the civil war happened in Texas. A small war that happened for only thirteen days.
Anyway, the Alamo is not the only thing that San Antonio has to offer you. So here are just some of the best things about San Antonio.
A Military City.
San Antonio is without a doubt one of the proudest when it comes to America’s military. So proud actually, that the city has the largest military base, Joint Base San Antonio. But what does this have to do with you? Well, for one thing, you can be damn sure that this city will be safe and secured almost all the time. With it being really proud of America’s military, you can actually learn a lot more about them when you just walk around town, or even when you visit the museums. Either way, San Antonio is more than proud of those who choose to risk their lives in the name of the American dream.
Speaking of walking, one of the best things about San Antonio is how walkable the city really is. Specifically, downtown San Antonio is an amazing place to just walk instead of driving a car or paying for a commute. This is because of all the parks scattered around here, as well as the spacious sidewalks the city has. In fact, it has been named as one of the most walkable cities in the entirety of the U.S. Meaning you don’t have to worry about spending money on gas for driving, or commuting when you can really just walk down to the store and get a little bit of exercise in the process as well.
The Pearl Brewery.
When it comes to city legends, there was none quite like the Pearl Brewery. This site operated from 1883 to 2001, so you would guess that it has made a pretty good name for itself. And although the brewery is no longer operational, it is now being used as a site where live events, weddings, and even a farmer’s market is present. And the brewery also has a Culinary Institute of America. So if you’re wondering where the best food and beer there is in the city, then this is the best place for you!
San Antonio was considered one of the fastest-growing cities in America. So it’s more than just your regular rodeo house and deserts. It actually has so much for you to see, from its culture, all the way to their current sports games. San Antonio, the Alamo City, welcomes all!
