A Guide to Living in San Antonio

Posted by
Welcome to San Antonio! With a rich mix of cultures, industries and tourist attractions, San Antonio is considered by many to be the true heart of Texas. Our central location has helped to create an unparalleled mix of everything Texas has to offer. From big city life to the rolling Hill Country, you can experience the Texan lifestyle without having to trek all over the Lone Star State. As they say, everything’s bigger in Texas, and that includes our love for the cool things San Antonio has to offer. Allow us to elaborate on a few things you may or may not have known that San Antonians absolutely love. The San Antonio Spurs From our no-nonsense GM-turned-supercoach to our superstar (without the ego) athletes, the Spurs have become more than just a team to San Antonio. They’re family. While other teams may opt for flash and media-seeking moves, the Spurs quietly wow us with the Big Fundamental’s steady play and Tony Parker’s perfectly (and sometimes amazingly) executed tear-drop floaters. One of the first things a San Antonio newbie should experience is a Spurs game in the AT&T Center. Plus, everyone looks great in black and silver! Say it with us now – GO SPURS GO! Technology San Antonio is quickly emerging as one of the top cities in the nation for tech startups. Collaborative working spaces like Geekdom promote the development and success of start-ups by allowing young companies to share ideas, offering coding classes to adults and hosting youth technology camps. VentureLab offers youth camps and courses to teach children and high school students how to create and operate various types of tech startups. From music producers to video game and app designers, kids get a head start in the tech world. Air Conditioning San Antonians are no strangers to oppressive summer heat. Temperatures 100 degrees and higher don’t shock us or shut the city down. Why? We know the importance of air conditioning for comfort and safety. Not only does CPS Energy offer fantastic tax rebates to homeowners who opt for energy-efficient air conditioners, HVAC companies like Elmer’s One Hour Air offer affordable tune-ups and maintenance plans to keep your air conditioner in top shape for the hot San Antonio springs and summers. We hope you enjoy your stay in San Antonio! If you have a Texas-sized amount of time on your hands, check out our honorable mentions: Tex-Mex, margaritas, Fiesta, the Alamo and the River Walk.
