North America / United States / Texas / San Antonio travel directory

San Antonio is the second most populous city in Texas and is the seventh most populous city in the United States. As of the 2006 U.S. Census estimate, the city had a population just under 1.3 million. As of 2006, the eight-county metropolitan area has a population of just under 2 million and is the 30th-largest metropolitan area in the USA. San Antonio, which is the county seat of Bexar County, covers over 400 square miles (1,000 km²) on the northern edge of the South Texas region of the State, and the southern edge of the Central Texas region. It has influences of both the American South and Southwest.

San Antonio was named for the Portuguese Saint Anthony of Padua, whose feast day it was (June 13) when a Spanish expedition stopped in the area in 1691. The city has a strong military presence—it is home to Fort Sam Houston, Lackland Air Force Base, Randolph Air Force Base, and Brooks City-Base, with Camp Bullis and Camp Stanley right outside the city. San Antonio is home to the South Texas Medical Center, the largest and only medical research and care provider in the South Texas region.

Famous for its River Walk, the Alamo, Tejano culture, and being home to SeaWorld and Six Flags Fiesta Texas theme parks, the city is visited by 20 million tourists per year, many of them attracted by San Antonio's reputation as an excellent shopping destination. San Antonio is also home to the first museum of modern art in Texas—the Marion Koogler McNay Art Museum, as well as one of the most successful National Basketball Association teams in league history, the San Antonio Spurs.
